Central to this study is to evaluate the pattern in the use of self-regulated learning (SRL) between high- and low-mathematics achievers in classrooms of two pre-university mathematical subjects with different levels of difficulty. The study involved 164 and 135 students in classes of low- and high-level mathematical subjects respectively. High achievers practiced more SRL than low achievers in classes of the low-level mathematical subject particularly in significantly reducing anxiety level, possessing positive attitude, and having better time management skills. In classes of the high-level subject, high achievers were significantly better than low achievers in test taking strategies. However, there was no tendency among high achievers to use will, self-regulation, and skill components than low achievers for both mathematical subjects.
