— The main goal of this paper is to evaluate the performance of deep learning with Residual Attention Network (RAN) for brain tumour classification. Digitalised Magnetic Resonance Image (MRI) datasets obtained from Malaysian hospitals and other sources are utilised in this paper. The MRI datasets consist of information of those patients who are 20 years old and above, both male and female. The RAN algorithm is trained and tested using the MRI datasets. The algorithm performance is evaluated based on training accuracy, testing accuracy, validation accuracy, and validation loss metrices. Moreover, a comparative analysis is done with Residual Neural Network (ResNet) and Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) using the same datasets. The findings from this study prove that RAN provides the best performance among the three algorithms. ResNet has good performance, with an accuracy ranging from 67% to 87%. The standard CNN algorithm does not perform well, with a very inconsistent accuracy of between 57% and 71%. RAN produces the highest and most consistent accuracy, which is 94% and above. Further explanation is provided in this paper to prove the efficiency of RAN for the classification of brain tumours
