    I have my 2nd set of mocks next week and I wanted to know what will the suggested topics for each of the three papers be, you reckon?! If so, could someone send a list for each of the three papers?

    Exactly the same topics as your first set of mocks. The topics in gcse maths don't change. There is no way to predict what will be on each of the papers.

    I mean topics that are more likely to come up in each paper.

    Almost any topic can be on any paper.

    There's a tiny list of things that are usually or frequently on the non-calculator paper:
    E.g. Surds, indices, standard form, estimation by rounding, arithmetic with whole numbers, fractions, decimals and simple %, simultaneous equations, and for the new 9-1 specification problems using exact trigonometric values for 30, 45, 60 degrees.
    There an even smaller set of topics that are generally restricted to calculator
    Quadratic formula, iteration, trigonometry with any angle,

    Other people may be able to add a few topics to either list

    Pretty much everything else I can think of could be on any of the 3 papers. Make a note of what is on paper 1 as it's unlikely to be repeated on 2 or 3. Do the same after paper 2 so you are left with a list of things not yet tested and therefore very likely to appear on paper 3.

    Ratios of Surfaces Areas to Volumes and volume calculations e.g.

    The radius of a sphere is 5cm. It is melted down to form 2 identical cylinders with radii of 2cm. Find the length of one cylinder in terms of Pi.

    Things like that can come up on non-calc
