The purpose of this study was to explore the Zimbabwean physics teachers' interpretation of the Advanced Level Physics curriculum. The study was motivated by the teachers' lacklustre approach to adopting new practices and the poor alignment of their understanding with the practice envisaged by developers. Zimbabwean Advanced Level physics teachers are in this predicament, as evidenced by the low numbers of undergraduate students and the misconceptions displayed by physics learners enrolling for first year university work in physics-related disciplines. Having an idea of physics teachers' perceptions, experiences and current practices with regard to the revised Advanced Level physics curriculum maybe fertile ground for intervention measures and policy decisions. To obtain a more holistic picture of the physics teachers' practices, a mixed methods research approach using the convergent parallel research design was adopted for the study. A closed survey questionnaire was used to solicit for information from 56 physics teachers in four educational provinces. Random sampling was used to select the survey respondents.
