I think maybe some basics regarding influenza will be tested.:D Global outbreaks tend to turn into questions from what I heard. But not immediately though. It takes the people in the boards some time to make really good and fair questions.

Just make sure that it's influenza A
Negative sense RNA Orthomyxovirus and that the reason it jumped from pigs to humans is via Genetic Shift as it is a segmented virus.

This is what they will ask you in Step 1
