In twenty first century, abundant innovative tools have been identified by the researchers to evaluate the conceptual understandings, problem solving, beliefs and attitudes about physics. Nevertheless, lacking of wide variety of evaluation instruments with respect to problem solving in physics. It indicates that the complexity of the domain fields of physics. The study was aimed to evaluate the student's problem-solving skills and the factors influences the problem-solving difficulties in physics. A population of 303 Bachelor of education students of physics in Piler Mandal, Chittoor district, Andhra Pradesh, India. The results of the study indicate and revealed that poor mathematical skills and lacking of understanding the problem are the major obstacles in the domain of problem solving skills in physics. To overcome these obstacles teachers, need to give enough assignments and need to recruit well qualified physics teachers.
