    (answering my own question ) I've looked at the past questions and I think it's quite likely that Sport und Fitness from Gesund Leben will come up as it doesn't seem to have done recently, the same with Mode from Kultur unserer Zeit, except for a weird question in Jan 2013 which was a mixture of Musik, Sport and Mode as far as I could make out.
    As for Medien, any of them really, and Familie und Verwandschaften probably Freundschaften but not really sure

    Does anyone know how many words the 35 mark question should be? I know it says 200 but are we expected to write more?

    Make sure you write more, because the chances of anyone getting 35/35 in 200words are slim! Even if you're a native speaker!! So yes I would write more

    I don't think it matters if you write 300 if you've got time, you just want to have an introduction and conclusion, and 5 or more points all developed well don't you?
