This paper describes our results for TRAC 2020 competition held together with the conference LREC 2020. Our team name was Ms8qQxMbnjJMgYcw. The competition consisted of 2 subtasks in 3 languages (Bengali, English and Hindi) where the participants’ task was to classify aggression in short texts from social media and decide whether it is gendered or not. We used a single BERT-based system with two outputs for all tasks simultaneously. Our model placed first in English and second in Bengali gendered text classification competition tasks with 0.87 and 0.93 in F1-score respectively.
