    Lower tier mainly for concentration and eye sight reasons

    In my only lecture where we have a vertical incline with seating I tend to sit at the lower tier as I often arrive to that lecture a couple minutes late due to a class right before it-I just sneak in and sit at the first available seat. I try to disturb the lecture as little as possible

    Interesting...Do you find sitting at the back of the lecture theatre that much harder to pick up what the lecturer is saying?

    Is that because the entrance leading into the lecture theatre is on ground level? As sometimes it is located at the back of the room on a higher floor?

    Yes much harder, and having people in front of me is ridiculously distracting.

    Yeah, the only entrance is at the bottom, as normal classrooms at Sheffield are

    High tier, because it's easier to go to the toilet without people looking as you leave, better communication with classmates and I personally find it easier to focus.

    As you see, its boring, dull with people flying all over the place. Not interested so I sit at back and do my own thing.

    Sure, I'm not quite sure myself.

    if the lecturer is funny/engaging - then mid-front.

    If s/he is a boring *******, then back
