What is the Difference Between May Have and Might Have?


I was confused, when I had to use either "may have" or "might have" in a sentence. The sentence is - "You may have / might have skipped the first two paragraphs". What should I use in this sentence? How "may have" is different than "might have"? Is it related to the certainty or tense? Please explain.

    Thanks for the answer. Your answer is very helpful. But I still have a doubt. Let's talk about the future tense. For example, "You may / might skip the first two paragraphs." Here, may is more probable than might?
