Abstract: As students are required to write longer genre-based composition, they should be more aware of the purpose and how their writing is functioning to communicate. The level of their writing is supposed to share common communicative purpose. If it is a story that is to share, then the composition should share a structure of story. However, to see if their writing is really functioning to communicate, it is important for students to understand the situation of their writing (to whom they are communicating? What language grammar should be used? In what situation is it communicated?). The relationship between the text and the context of situation around the process of composing their texts is called register (Nunan, 2008). This paper presents analysis of a composition produced by students in a Narrative and Descriptive Writing class. The composition is randomly chosen from students‟ narrative writing, which was the first writing assignment of the course, as the data. The register analysis of the two texts was done using the systemic functional grammar approach to see how students perceive the communicative situation and if they are aware of the context of situation around their choice of grammatical features in their composition
