    Just make snarky comments.

    Did you have a question? I could only see Zacken's OP.

    This looks amazing, such a shame I don't have the brain for advanced maths haha. Can you recommend me any resources over the summer to bridge the gap from GCSE to A-level maths? It's been 5 years since I've done maths GCSE and I acheived a B grade. I'm looking at starting an A-level in maths this september coming if my university back up plan does not work out.
    Thank you! And don't put yourself down like that, you're starting A-Level maths, which literally stands for "Advanced"-level maths, so you do have the brain for it!

    And in terms of resources, the only thing I've ever used for A-Level Maths and Further Maths is examsolutions.net, I used it to teach myself the entirety of those two subjects and did rather well, considering. So have a look at that site, sit back and watch a few videos. You'll get the hang of it.

    To be fair in the first sentence of the thread it says
    This thread should serve as an interactive resource to help people bridge the gap to undergraduate mathematics.

    And later

    That said, we should aim to avoid discussing A-level material as well as topics from postgraduate courses as these will be of little interest to the majority of people participating in this thread.

    Those will be a good starter - although admittedly on the easier and "exercise"-y side rather than problem solving. Still, good way to start out. You can migrate to these once you've picked up some confidence with integration.

    I understand that this thread is mainly for those bridging the gap from a-level to undergraduate but it's not as if I've dropped the question on a thread about undergraduate mathematics.

    Anyway, Zacken has so nicely and kindly answered my question and I have no wish to derail the thread

    Hahaha, good point. I quite liked it nevertheless.

    And on that note, people, try this:

    \displaystyle \

\begin{equation*}\int_0^{\frac{ \pi}{2}} x\cot x \, \mathrm{d}x\end{equation*}

    I'm not debating with you but the OP did say that the thread is not exclusive and that everyone is welcome. Anyway, I will not clog up your thread any further, don't worry
