Assessment on Difficulties Encountered by Grade 12 Humanities and Social Sciences Strand Students in Practical Research 2 at Bestlink College of the Philippines: Basis for a Proposed Guide
Keywords:socioeconomic status, financial aspect
Research is the study of new ideas or information to attain facts and new conclusions. Research is difficult to do because many senior high school students encountered difficulties in it. Based on our research and understandings, Practical Research 2 is quantitative research that is defined as statistical research. Grade 12 Humanities and Social Sciences (HUMSS) Strand students have this subject to assist them in their research in college. This kind of thesis gives the student knowledge, time management, and cooperation with their group. While doing this research, students cannot deny the tiredness they get from it due to lack of sleep, ideas, and gathered information; hence, they are losing hope to finish their research. Thus, we analyzed the importance of research to students. A survey was conducted using a questionnaire. Using quantitative research, we involved 47 Grade 12 HUMSS Strand students in Bestlink College of the Philippines as respondents. The respondents said that time management and financial problems are the main difficulties that they encountered while doing research. The results demonstrated that students should save money for research expenses and have good time management while lessening their difficulties in doing Practical Research 2.
