Everything that we apply today is brought by research; it is where an individual is doing a careful study to preserve and improve the quality of life. In conducting research, the researcher must be cautious. They must allot sufficient time to complete each stage of the activity. The researchers should add more hours or weeks before the scheduled deadline because some things are more difficult than what the researcher expected. Research is tedious; however, teachers and students cannot escape this work because this is often used as an academic requirement. The researchers used the descriptive method of research. This design is the most appropriate because this study describes the challenges encountered by Grade 12 Humanities and Social Sciences Strand students in Practical Research 2 subject. The researchers found out that students face problems in terms of financial support in making research and collecting all the data coming from the questionnaire. Several students recommended that one must choose the topic that they think they will enjoy making research on. The researchers realized that many difficulties are present regarding the construction of a research study, and the problems are inevitable. However, there are also ways to overcome it. One must know their goal and the reasons why they will study the topic. The majority of the answers of the students showed that they are struggling in conducting research. Some students also answered that that research becomes easy when they can choose a topic that they are describes as interested in.
