This paper investigates the causes and factors which influence the teaching-learning process and hinder students’ interests in studies at the college level in district Attock such as textbooks’ layout and design, inappropriate teaching methods, lack of technology integration and A/V aids usage in instructions, overcrowded classes, class period time, and media usage. The literature was reviewed and four research questions were made. A questionnaire on five points Likert scale was developed containing 36 items relating to six clusters of factors which hinder interest-based learning. The reliability and validity of the instrument were ensured with Cronbach alpha and experts' opinions. A convenient sample of 600 students (300 males and 300 females) from all 12 colleges situated at the tehsil headquarters was drawn. Data was collected through a questionnaire and was analyzed by using mean and standard deviation using SPSS version 28. The results showed that all the factors have a significant effect on interest-based learning. Recommendations were made to improve the teaching-learning process by improving textbook design and content, technology-based instructions, promoting reading habits in students, and managing overcrowded classes and class period time.
