It doesn't matter, it's just a NAB so you only need to pass it.
That's the problem, it's not a NAB - this was only the case for people sitting Higher English in 2010 and previous to that. For people sitting Higher English this year (2011, which thank god I won't have to sit), the course has been altered: the Personal Study NAB has been scrapped and now ~20% worth of your overall grade comes from a folio of work reflective essay/creative writing stuff, although I don't think the external exam has changed. So, by choosing a popular topic you're only making it more difficult for yourself to get a good mark which is why I'm discouraging the OP from doing so and encouraging them to pick something more original.
Eventually I did an essay on how it was wrong to stereotype young people. That was ok because I passed!
Maybe you could do state schools V private schools (depending on your opinion!!!) or just anything that you think is totally unfair (but relevant to Higher English). Just make sure it's a subject you actually care about because otherwise you won't try your best.
And theres a lot of facts about it because thats important too!
I just got my topic off this list: http://www.myspeechclass.com/persuasivetopics2.html
Abortion, gun control, and gay marriage are there too but there are quite a few unique ideas.
