Tuition isn't necessary to get the top grades, but some people may find it useful (though I personally didn't).
This is basically what I do to get top Maths grades:
I try to finish the content and be thorough with it as fast as I could by reading the textbook examples and watching youtube videos from Examsolutions. I also have a school 'Integral Maths' login which is for the MEI exam board but I love practising from it because the questions are typically more difficult than the AQA ones.
After being thorough with the content, I try to do as many different types of questions for each topic but focus mainly on doing hard questions to prepare myself for worst case scenarios in the real exam. I also write down questions that I struggled with or made silly mistakes on, and I revise that topic again a few days using just the questions sheet. I also skim over this on the exam day, so I can familiarize myself with the hard questions and remember where I make silly mistakes so that I won't mess up and do this in the real exam.
