# Difference between H1 Math and H2 Math Prior to going Junior College, we always hold JC talks at various location to discuss with post O-levels students what to expect in JC. So many were confused with H1 Mathematics and H2 Mathematics. Let’s compare and contrast H1 and H2 Math in A-levels. And is H1 truly easier?

### Content difference between H1 and H2 Math

Firstly, H1 Mathematics is 50% content of H2 Mathematics. Topics such as Vectors, Complex Numbers, Differential Equations, etc are not taught to H1 Mathematics students.

### Is H1 Math easier?

In short, yes.

But will questions will be easier? No! I think there is a common misconception that H1 Mathematics is easier, only the studying part since students have lesser things to study. However, difficulty of the questions are not being halved or scaled down.

### Exam difference between H1 and H2 Math

H2 Mathematics involves two 3-hr papers where paper 1 tests on pure mathematics while paper two comprise of statistics and pure mathematics. The overall composition for pure mathematics and statistics is 70\$ and 30% respectively. H1 Mathematics, on the other hand, has one 3-hr paper which consists of 60 marks on statistics and 35 marks on pure mathematics.
