I think my A-Level grade in Maths is either going to be a low A or a high B (based on the marks I have been given). I need an A for my university course, so should I revise over the Summer just in case I need to resit in the Autumn or should I just wait until results day?

It depends on how you feel tbh. You could would wait until results day so that you have time to relax and because it would be annoying to work through June and July only to realise that you didn't need to. But if you feel like you won't have enough time to revise enough between results day and the resits to secure the A you need, you could do little bits of revision- like a practice paper a week and a set of practice problems on the topics you are likely to forget or know you need to keep practicing- until results day. Then you can either stop revising if you get the A or increase the intensity of your revision and do it in a more structured way if you get a B instead.
I hope you do get an A though.

I would just try and chill throughout the summer. Chances are, you have achieved the grade you need and if that's the case, you will have spent the summer getting stressed and burnt out for nothing if keep studying. If you haven't got an A, you will be much better off having a good break and then going back to revising feeling refreshed (it will be much easier to be productive with your revision if you have a motivation in the form of knowing you have not achieved your target).
