The data were collected from the students’ writing test conducted by the researcher. The result of data analysis shows that: 1) Substitution of Simple Non Past dominates the types of error produced by the students. 2) Use of the Wrong Tense and Form dominates the types of mistake made by the students in their narrative writing test. 3) The factor causing their error is Ignorance of Rule Restriction due to their lack of knowledge in English language especially in past tense. 4) The factor causing their mistake is Incomplete Application of Rule because of their fatigue or inattention and their failure to develop the structure of past tense fully. 5) The group of male students dominate the errors, while the group of female students dominate the mistakes.
