Abstract

The purpose of this study is to analyze students' mistakes about using past tense in Narrative texts based on problems that make students feel confused about using past tense in their writing, especially Narrative texts. The research method is descriptive qualitative. The subject of research researchers chose grade 8 (2019/2020) at SMP Pasundan Medan. The results showed that the researcher found four types of errors: omission, additions, misinformation, misordering. Then, the researchers found the highest error made by students was misinformation with a percentage of 53%. This problem is influenced by students feeling confused to understand the simple past because they do not know the meaning and difference between regular verbs and irregular verbs. Therefore, students claim that they rarely practice writing paragraphs.
