The research was based on the impact of gender on academic performance ON Arts-related subjects, a case study of Nasarawa State University, Keffi, using a sample of 160 participants derived from Art-based faculties. A questionnaire was used as the prime instrument to correlate the participant's responses to their academic scores. The study investigated the differences and similarities between males and females in not only gender-based academic performance but also considered gender via other factors such as age. The research used independent t-Test statistics. The result suggested that females performed better than males in arts-related subjects; but recorded that age did not significantly influence academic performance. It is therefore concluded that institutions, lecturers, and parents should encourage males to study harder in arts-related subjects; while equal emphasis should be put in encouraging both younger and older students to perform well in arts-related subjects.
