You might find these sites helpful for pre-made revision timetables:
How to create a Revision Timetable
At the top of your timetable write down each day of the week (e.g. Monday – Sunday) and down the side right down the times in e.g. hourly slots (from e.g. 9:00am-7:00pm)
Then divide your timetable up into boxes, so that you have a box for each hour.
Write down each of your subjects and try to give each subject the same amount of time – you might wish to spend longer times on the subjects you find easy, but remember to not just revise your favourites or not revise a subject because you find it ‘’easy’’.
Remember to take regular breaks e.g. every half hour and a longer break after 2-3 sessions.
Try to alter the subjects you’re revising – so you don’t revise one subject in a long stint. There’s nothing like Maths equations followed by English Literature (for example) for variety
Remember to start early so that you have enough time
When I was doing my revision, I actually incorporated ‘’recap’’ sessions into the timetable
Don’t feel guilty if you miss a day – just make sure you get back on track as soon as you can
Mark clearly the times when you know you cannot revise because of e.g. family commitment, seeing friends etc
Try changing your timetable ever so often for some variety (see templates above)
You might also consider basing it on the number of papers you have to sit for each subject (e.g. 3 if you’re doing Science)
I have no idea why Edexcel don't do specimen exam papers. You could ask your teacher for them or visit the website:
www.gcsemathspastpapers.com - unfortunately there are no answers though, but if you know someone who is doing A-Level Maths then they could work them out for you.
Remember that the difficulty of the questions is required to be at the same standard whichever exam board you follow. Below is a link for the OCR specimen paper for 2003. (As I didn't do Edexcel or OCR, I'm not in a position to answer specific questions about the style of the exams)
Post again if you have any more questions - no doubt others on the forum will also contribute their suggestions.

I did create a revision timetable originally when I was revising but I ended up not using it, as for some exams you have to revise more. For instance I could only afford to spend a couple of nights for Graphics revision as I had a History exam the day after and a Maths exam the day before, both of which I considered more high priority. It is good you are interested in this now, I hope you do well.
