I would recommend the following:

I would say one of the most important parts of gcse is the algebra including
1. Indices
2. Graphs of a straight line
3. Factorising quadratics and other algebraic expressions
4. Solving equations and inequalities
5. Translations and reflections of different functions
7. General manipulation of algebraic expressions

There are also a couple of important things in the number topic
1. Surds and rationalising denominators
2. Standard form

For geometry there are a few things you need to be confident with
1. Area of triangles
2. Area and circumference of a circle (including arc lengths and areas of sectors)
3. Surface area and circumference of a sphere
4. Pythagoras' theorem and trigonometric ratios (soh cah toa)
5. Sine rule, cosine rule and area of a triangle

If you can do all of this well you'll be very well prepared.
