such information is not disclosed by SUN so i doubt if you will get an exact % of 1.5 questions... but there will be a lot of them because of the number of new features added in the 1.5 exam like
Generics
I/O
Enums
Boxing/ Autoboxing....
well hope you got the idea

From this site's SCJP FAQ:

How is the SCJP 1.5 exam different from the SCJP 1.4?

Exam objectives: Several important new language features have been added, including enums, generics, static imports, and autoboxing/unboxing. API features added to the exam include java.lang.StringBuilder, java.util.Locale, java.util.Formater, java.util.Scanner. java.util.regex.Pattern, and java.util.regex.Matcher. Java IO features have been added, including File, BufferedReader, BufferedWriter, FileReader, FileWriter and PrintWriter. Concepts such as loose coupling and high cohesion have been added, as well as greater emphasis on encapsulation as it relates to JavaBean conventions. Bit manipulation (e.g., shifting) has been dropped.

Howdy Abhijit,

you will have to expect a lot of questions regarding generics as well.
About the differences of the exam you might have a look on this.
http://faq.javaranch.com/java/ScjpFaq#15diff14

Additionally, there are also two topics that are no longer in the newer exam: the java.lang.Math class and all this >> bit <<< shifting.

Howdy,
Please have a look into your private messages by clicking the "My Private Messages" link near the top of this page.

Yours,
Bu.
