Writing is an important and difficult skill in every level of education. In writing, students make errors in grammar, especially in arranging sentences. In this research, the researcher wanted to know the types of errors the students made and the frequency of errors found in narrative text made by the third semester students of English Department 2017. The subject of the study was the third semester students of English Department 2017 at STKIP PGRI Pasuruan. The researcher focused on Surface Strategy Taxonomy. It was divided into four categories: Omission, Addition, Misformation, and Misordering. As the result, the total number of errors was 379 items. The highest number of errors was misformation with 185 items (48.81%), omission 100 items (26.39%), addition 74 items (17.41%), and the least error occurred on misordering with 20 items (5.28%). It can be concluded that the students’ grammar understanding in narrative text was adequate. It was expected that the Writing and Grammar lecturer could give more attention to the students who have difficulties in grammar.
