I can't answer your question, but it may help someone else to tell us the exam board (Edexcel, AQA etc), because there may be differences - at least this was the case for me when I was in school.

I've had a look here:
https://www.aqa.org.uk/subjects/math...on-at-a-glance

It says that "Content from any part of the specification may be assessed" for all three papers. I may be wrong, but I interpret this to mean that anything may come up in each paper. Maybe you could ask your maths teacher as well?

EDIT:
I've also found this on that website:
AO1: Use and apply standard techniques
Students should be able to:

accurately recall facts, terminology and definitions
use and interpret notation correctly
accurately carry out routine procedures or set tasks requiring multi-step solutions.
AO2: Reason, interpret and communicate mathematically
Students should be able to:

make deductions, inferences and draw conclusions from mathematical information
construct chains of reasoning to achieve a given result
interpret and communicate information accurately
present arguments and proofs
assess the validity of an argument and critically evaluate a given way of presenting information.
AO3: Solve problems within mathematics and in other contexts
Students should be able to:

translate problems in mathematical or non-mathematical contexts into a process or a series of mathematical processes
make and use connections between different parts of mathematics
interpret results in the context of the given problem
evaluate methods used and results obtained
evaluate solutions to identify how they may have been affected by assumptions made.
