Learning sometimes becomes burdensome rather than pleasurable, that is why large number of students end their educational journey before completion of the pursued level. Due to the issues arising out of the students’ negative attitude towards education very few are actually mentally present in the classroom. The motivation of students is one of the cardinal factors in education, particularly owing to importance of academic performance in their educational life. Classroom motivation plays an important role in the formation of students’ attitude towards learning process. Students’ motivation can be categorised into two types: Intrinsic motivation and extrinsic motivation. Therefore, intrinsic motivation makes classroom learning a pleasurable activity filled with enthusiasm, whereas, extrinsic makes learning a burdensome and forced activity.
