We are expected to know the shape of the molecule but not the exact bond angles. However, when there are lone pairs surrounding the central atom, we are expected to know that the bond angles are slightly less compared to central atoms with no lone pairs.
I think we will need to know the shape as well as the bond angles; we won't necessarily need to know the exact bond angle (in cases where lone pairs are present), but we will need to know an approximation (i.e. <109.5 in cases of trigonal pyramidal shape).
