The topics are different for each exam board. I'm assuming yours is Edexcel so I can't comment as I had WJEC for GCSE. Even if you find someone here who's doing the same exam board, they might not necessarily study the same topics as schools have a range of topics they can choose for each module (can't speak for all exam boards - this is true for WJEC).

I admire the fact you want to prepare early but your best bet is asking school.
