This study assess students’ abilities in analyzing, generalizing, integrating, justifying, and non-routine problem solving using TIMSS questions. Qualitative method was used as the research approach in this study. The finding showed TIMSS Questions still challenging to students. The findings showed none of the students perceived their thinking skills’ levels at “high”. 59 students (78.67%) perceived their Higher Order Thinking skills’ level at “moderate”, while 16 students (21.33%) perceived their Higher Order Thinking skills’ level at “low”. 78.67% students at “moderate” level has the ability to apply their understanding and knowledge in situation relatively complex
