Can anyone recommend any set subjunctive phrases, I have an as speaking exam in a few days. I've been told to use fillers such as 'pues' and entonces, is this a bad idea

Pues and entonces work. Por eso (therefore) can work as well as a 'filler'. Don't overuse them though as it seems like the point is to speak in subjunctive!

Other Fillers:
Sin embargo - however
Bueno - Ok then (Don't overuse this)
Es decir (that is to say)
Luego - later
Por fin - lastly/finally
Es decir - that is to say

Don't use too many fillers, it can seem like you're hesitating too much, use a few but not loads.

Subjunctives:
-Most things with que e.g. Me entristece que haya tanto peligro en el mundo
-Si hubiera __________ tendría (If + subjunctive + conditional)

Which topics are you doing?/ what is your chosen topic?

Okay well a couple of ideas:
'no creo que todos los padrastros sean horribles'
'espero que continua tener un buen relación con mi hermana'
