This study aims to identify awareness of the physics metacognition of IKIP Mataram. This research is a survey research with a sample of 24 students. Student metacognition awareness data was collected using the Metacognition Awareness Inventory (MAI), which was analyzed descriptively and statistically. The results showed that the students' metacognition awareness was sufficient and lacking. Student metacognition awareness is not significantly different in terms of gender. Based on the results of the study it can be concluded that the awareness of metacognition needs to be improved through proper intervention in learning. Student gender differences need to be further investigated using a larger sample to obtain more relevant and comprehensive metacognition awareness data.
