Abstract. Note that there are five mutually non-isomorphic groups of order 12: two decomposable Abelian groups $G_{1}$ $\cong$ $C_{3}\times C_{4}$ and $G_{2}$ $\cong$ $C_{3}$$\times$$K_{4}$; three indecomposable non-Abelian groups $A_4$, $Q_{12}$ and $D_{12}$. For a finite field $F$, the structure of $\mathscr{U}(FA_4)$ was determined by R.K. Sharma, J.B. Srivastava and M. Khan in 2007. In this paper, we determine the structure of the unit group $\mathscr{U}(FG)$ of the group ring $FG$, where $F$ is a finite field, and $G$= $G_1$, $G_2$, $Q_{12}$ or $D_{12}$.
