dc.description.abstract This study investigated the Grade 12 learners’ perceptions of writing practical reports on Higher Level Physical Science, in Omusati Educational Region. The objectives of the study were: (a) to find out to what extent do Grade 12 Higher Level Physical Science learners carry out practicals and write practical reports; (b) to determine the level of the Grade 12 Higher Level Physical Science learners’ knowledge of writing practical reports in Physical Science; (c) to device strategies which can be used to improve Grade 12 Higher Level Physical Science learners’ understanding of writing practical report. The population of this study included 320 Higher Level Physical Science learners in Grade 12 in the Omusati Educational Region. This study consisted of four Secondary schools offering Physical Science on higher level and all Higher Level Physical Science learners at the selected schools took part in the study. Simple random sampling was used to select four out of ten schools. Two research instruments were used to collect the data from the Grade 12 Higher Level Physical Science learners, a Questionnaire and an Observation Schedule. This study employed a sequential explanatory mixed methods design in order to seek responses to the stated three objectives. The study revealed that the Higher Level Physical Science learners in Omusati educational region were not prepared well on how to write practical reports before final examinations because resources for use during the practical sessions and time allocated to practical sessions were not enough for the learners to carry out practicals and write practical reports. In light of the findings discovered, the study recommends that the Ministry of Education, Arts and Culture considers incorporating practical slots in the school timetable and set aside funds for the provision of enough equipment to schools, for all the learners to be involved in carrying out of practical work. en_US
