For UK students, notably, the math section include matrices and complex numbers (normally only covered in A-level Further Maths). Outside of the math section there is no expected specific subject knowledge as I recall - in particular the science section does not expect any specific knowledge of any of the sciences, and merely tests your comprehension and logical reasoning skills using scientific examples.
