Have you ever sat in an Econometrics lecture listening to the lecturer mumble something about confidence intervals, lines of best fit etc – concepts which simply go in one ear and out the other? Where the most interesting part of the lecture is checking Facebook on your phone every minute to see if anything has changed or anxiously checking your watch to see when class will end? Why is it that we bother to turn up to lectures at all when we aren’t interested in the subject? Often it is required to complete a specific major or course, which relates to the career path we want to enter.
