    Hi Guys. I have a kind of smallish dilemma and if you could give some advice concerning this problem it would be great.

    My degree enables me to teach from year 1 to year 7 and then from year 8 to year 10 in 2 subjects of my choice (maths and science). However, when it comes to student teaching, I have to do both a primary and a secondary student teaching prac. Now, here is the problem.

    Do I do the secondary prac this year- 3 weeks- baring in mind I am only 4 years older then my students, don't know as much of the course material, will probably be teaching the difficult year 9's.

    or do I do it next year

    - Know more of the course material, 4 week prac, but will probably be worried about it for the entire year.

    So, would you get the secondary prac over and done with or would you wait until you knew more of the course knowledge?
