Here's a list of A/A* topics in my GCSE maths revision guide:

-Indices of the form 1/n and a/b

-Surds, including rationalising the denominator and solving real life problems with surds

-Variation, direct and inverse (basically proportion)

-Limits of accuracy

-Sectors of circles, calculating area of sector and length of arc

-Surface area of cylinder/volume of pyramid

-Cones (surface area, area, volume etc)

-Spheres (as above)

-Pythagoras' theorem in three dimensions

-Circle theorems (including alternate angle theorem)

-Similar shapes

-Solving problems with area and volume ratio

-Vectors (addition, subtraction, and vector geometry)

-Setting up simultaneous equations from real life problems

-Solving quadratics in the form ax^2 + bx + c = 0

-Solving a quadratic by factorisation

-Using the quadratic formula

-Completing the square

-2D trigonometry problems

-3D trigonometry problems

-Sine and cosine values from 0 degrees to 360 degrees

- Sine rule/cosine rule

-Area of non-right angled triangles

-Parallel and perpendicular lines

-Quadratic graphs, reciprocal graphs, cubic graphs and exponential graphs

-Algebraic fractions and solving equations with algebraic fractions

-Linear and non linear simultaneous equations

-Changing the subject of a formula (where the subject appears twice)

-Graph transformations

-Geometric and algebraic proofs

I hope this helps you :)

Sorry, it's a hugeeeeee list. Good luck in all your exams :D
