There are also important respiratory centers in the pons, and the hypothalamus regulates hunger. I wouldn't expect to see too much on the brain, though.

They might put some questions that point to the general areas of the brain, but probably nothing specific.

For anatomy, do we need to know about the teeth and do we need to know about respiratory hormones?

You need to know about the teeth.
Not sure what you mean by respiratory hormones.

What is the significance of the peritoneum? (in terms of significance in the test)

What is the significance of the peritoneum? (in terms of significance in the test)
It covers most of the digestive organs, has two layers (parietal and Visceral; parietal surrounds entire cavity, visceral covers individual organs) and the slit between the membranes that contains serous fluid, some organs are retroperitoneal and lie behind the peritoneum. Mesentry: double layer of peritoneum that extends to digestive organs from body wall (also called peritoneal folds). Provides roots for blood vessels, lymphatics, & nerves to reach the digestive viscera, holds organs in place, stores fat.

I've never seen a question on peritoneum on the test. If they do it'll probably be like one question or something. Not that important.

Perhaps there might be a question like: "What is the largest peritoneal fold in the human body?" (or something like that). That would be the greater omentum.

For Division B, will there be any physiology questions on the tests? If so, what are some examples?

The rules says that it's minimal physiology, but I doubt it'll actually be that way.
Some questions for respiratory might be: "In what form is most carbon dioxide carried in the blood?" or maybe "What is responsible for the change in voice pitch?"
Some questions for digestive might be: "What hormone stimulates secretion of gastric juices?" or maybe "What emulsifies fats before the main chemical digestion by lipase?"
