There isn't so much a set list, but I have a few suggestions as to what may come up on each paper, as I have about 3 of each lying around at home
Paper 1:
•direct/indirect proportion
•angle rules
•indices laws
•median/means etc
•recurring decimals as fractions
•probability
•ratio
•surds
•area in terms of pi
•equation of line/circle
•solving inequalities
•bounds
•graphs (inc trig graphs)
•exact trig values for 0, 30, 45, 60 and 90
•cumulative frequency
•completing the square
•turning points of graphs

Paper 2:
•sequences
•sdt graphs
•direct/inverse proportion
•bounds
•equations on the equation sheet (e.g. density mass volume etc)
•shaded area w a shape cut out
•area/volume of shapes
•histograms
•simultaneous equations w graphs
•venn diagrams (probability)
•factorising
•compound interest
•trigonometry
•transformations
•solving simple equations
•equation of a line

Paper 3:
•box plots
•functions
•circle theorems
•sine/cosine rule
•ratio
•percentages of amounts
•prove that _____
•iteration
•trigonometry
•inequalities
•angles
•loci
•average speed
•turning point
•simplify fully for algebra
•compound interest
•probability
•distance time graph
•sequences
•angles
•turning point/complete the square

Hopefully this should help somewhat, don't just revise these tho, revise everything on the aqa specification if you are aiming for that 7/8/9

Any topic that wasn't fully tested on paper 1 could appear on paper 2.
There isn't a list of topics for each paper, almost any maths you have covered could be on any paper.
There are a few topics that they don't want you to use a calculator for e.g. Simple %, surds and a few where calculator is essential e.g. Interation, trigonometry (except for exact values for 30,45,60 degree angles)
