HI Guys,

been trying to figure this out for a bit, but just don't seem to be able to get the right variable...
I'm adding a direct link, in administrator, to create a new article with the category already selected. 

I can get the edit/new link but don't seem to be able to set the category

index.php?option=com_content&view=article&layout=edit&jform[catid]=24

Any idea of what the URL variable is to set the category correctly for the article please...

You can't do that.
Only if you write plugin for that.

I wrote a plugin that allows one to do that.  Here is a link to the page of its instructions and access to the plugin: http://icueproject.com/products/set-filters

This behavior was present up through 3.1.x, but (inadverantly) removed in 3.2 with code that changed how input parameters store the filter settings.  I wrote this plugin to restore this behavior, as I depend upon this behavior to give clients dashboard links to pages with preset filters.
