This study aims to describe information about student learning difficulties in Biology, especially Protein Synthesis in Distance Learning (PJJ) at SMA Negeri 1 Paciran. The type of research used is descriptive qualitative research. The research subjects were selected by purposive sampling technique as much as one student by considering their cognitive abilities above the class average but had a score on the Daily Assessment (PH) on the Protein Synthesis material less than the Minimum Completeness Criteria (KKM). The research data were collected from the subject using interview techniques and open questionnaires. Then analyzed through three stages, namely reduction, display, and verification of data and drawing conclusions. The conclusion of this study is that the difficulty of students in understanding the Protein Synthesis material during Long Distance Learning (PJJ) includes the characteristics of Protein Synthesis material which is classified as difficult material requiring high thinking power, because the material discussed can only be seen with a microshop tool. The level of health of the subject is less stable, the way the teacher is conveyed to the subject cannot be understood. In addition, the learning difficulties of research subjects are caused by the lack of internet quota which is vital in PJJ.
