This is an excellent question, and not as simple as some people would have you believe. Here's the guidance we give on this:

In summary, it is true to say that Strands 1 and 2 (Stats, Prob, and all parts of Geometry) are the main element of Paper 2,

with Strands 3 to 5 (Number, Algebra and Functions) the main element of Paper 1.

However, there can be overlap of strands across both papers.

In particular, you could get questions about length, area and volume in either paper. "Number" is fundamental to maths, and so could be in either paper, and algebra occurs across more than one strand.

Having said all of that, it seems likely that there would be more overlap across papers at Leaving Cert level than at Junior Cert level.

Our advice would still be to avoid making too many assumptions when it comes to last minute revision.
