I think there'll definitely be angles. I think we'll also have to do stem and leaf and/or a bar chart, something circle-related, finding the nth term, pythagoras... That's just based on what *wasn't* in non-calc and the type of topics that tend to be on calc. Can't remember if there was a ratio problem on non-calc? They like those

I'm sitting the same paper. Some topics listed below echo previous comments but I hope this helps.
I suggest covering the following topics:

Pythagoras theorem
Inequalities
Graphs/Pie Charts/Stem Leaf
Conversions of units
Shapes - 2D and 3D
Area/Volume/Surface Area of shapes
Area of a Circle/Circumference of a Circle/etc.
Parallel lines/Angles in Triangles/Angles in Polygons
Transformations
Exchange rate of money
Percentage increase and decrease
Ratio
Probability
Mode/Mean/Median/Range
Frequency tables
Cube and Square roots (know the functions on the calculator!)

There are videos on Youtube demonstrating how to use mathematical/scientific calculators and the functions needed to quickly find out square roots/cube roots/fractions excetra.

Good Luck.
