Ms Arthi Maharaj graduated with an Education cum laude Honours degree for research into students’ experiences of Teaching Practice assessments. Maharaj, who is passionate about Education, identified that ‘the Teaching Practice component is an extensive practical module in which Education students go out to gain practical teaching experience at schools. However, what is often overlooked is the fact that students’ face many challenges during Teaching Practice which affect their overall performance in the classroom’. The greatest challenge for Maharaj was time management. ‘To complete six modules which consisted of extensive content, and submit the major research project in a year was extremely demanding. You have to be dedicated and manage time efficiently, especially with so many assignments, presentations and deadlines to meet,’ she said. Her advice to other students is to work consistently and remain focused. She plans to go on to do a master’s degree.
