struggling so much maths alevel

I struggle with integration so much. I've gone through the textbook, doing by parts, substitution, reverse chain rule but it doesn't make sense. It's just not clicking and it's making me stressed. Every time i do a question, i've gotton the method wrong.

Does anyone have any advice or youtube videos to watch bc i'm desperate

this was literally me!!! i had to slow down on it so much and i was struggling soooo bad. I binged watched the organic chemistry tutors videos on integration, i also recommend zeeshan zamurred he has very good videos, then do the texbook questions slowly one at a time and after u done all of them keep practicing exam questions. theres only 5 ish intergration methods and i recommend doing 1 method a day. i did after 1 month of struggling now its my favourite topic and it will be urs too!

Here's a link for substitution.

Check out the account for similar explanatory videos on calculus (and trig too).

Actually I discovered it via a Twitter / X post from a teacher :smile:

Taylor Swift explaining Taylor series is one of my favourites too. But each to his/her own.
