I’m a second year BSc Economics & Finance student at an ex-poly University, ranked around top 10 for its Business school I think but quite low down in the overall league table.
Thing is, I’ve received 90% + on all my assignments and exams in my Econometrics module so far and I barely attend lectures at all. So I was just curious to know whether the level of difficulty for this module varied across different universities.
The following is the basics points of what we have been taught to date:
1. Nature of Econometrics
2. The simple regression model
3. Multiple regression analysis: estimation
4. Multiple regression analysis: inference
5. Multiple Regression analysis: OLS asymptotics
6. Multiple Regression Analysis: Further issues
7. Multiple Regression Analysis: Qualitive info variables
9. Specification & data issue
Btw, the module core textbook is “introductory Econometrics” by Wooldridge. I believe we are doing the first 9 chapters of the book this academic year.

You cover probably the average amount as any other course. But the most intensive courses will also cover some of Part 2 and chapters 15-17. The rest of Part 3 might also be covered. But it also depends whether you go for breadth or depth.

Hmm thanks =)
Hopefully the lack of breadth wont come back to haunt me if i decide to step into Postgraduate studies..

I so so so wished I did that sort of econometrics. This is what we do in our second year Econometrics module.
