Higher-order thinking skills (HOTS) have an essential role for students, especially in the 21st century. HOTS is seen as a basic ability that must be developed, especially in learning mathematics. Problem-solving ability is one of the basic abilities that students must have. Problem-solving ability is one of the highest HOTS levels by combining creative thinking and critical thinking. The purpose of this study was to analyze the students’ highest cognitive level in solving HOTS problems. This research is included in the form of descriptive qualitative research. The subjects of this study were 29 students of class VII MtsN 9 Banjar who had heterogeneous ability levels, namely high, medium and low mathematical abilities. However, this article only presents data from three subjects that represent Heterogeneous ability. Several data collection techniques in this research, namely the HOTS problem-solving test and semi-structured interviews. Data analysis techniques include data reduction, data presentation, and conclusion or verification. The validity of the data is obtained through validation and triangulation. The results of this study conclude that students with high mathematical abilities can reach the cognitive level of C6 (creating) in solving HOTS problems, while students with moderate mathematical abilities can reach the highest cognitive level of C5 (Evaluating) in solving HOTS problems, then for students with mathematical abilities. Low can reach the highest cognitive level C4 (analyze) in solving HOTS problems.
