For the As paper I'd be surprised if either Plato, the theodicies, ontological argument and maybe cosmological didn't come up!

Aristotle and goodness of God has come up two years in a row!
Kant came up in ethics and philosophy last year so I don't think Kants moral argument will come up.
And the teleological came up last year but as a main question 'explain the teleological argument with Hines criticisms' so I don't think they would give a question like that even if it did come up.

For genetic engineering do you know what theory it is going to be asking us on? I think (from other predictions) that the last topic may be compare a relative and absolute theory of ethics, or compare a deontological with a teleological theory of ethics

Oh yeah apparently the last one is moral relativism and absolutism forgot that one
