The method in this research is a mix method, using qualitative and quantitative for maximum data analysis results. The results show that, in terms of background factors, the test questions of Nanning paper The comprehensive difficulty is higher than that of the Nanjing paper. In the other four factors, the comprehensive difficulty of the Nanjing paper is slightly higher than that of the Nanning paper. The comprehensive difficulty coefficient of the two sets of test papers is slightly larger in terms of the calculation level and the cognitive level. The set of test papers basically maintains a balance of difficulty in the five factors. Based on the results of the research.
