    1. Comment on the projected future sources of electricity shown in Figure 4. (7 marks)
    2. Discuss the need for fracking in the UK. (8 marks)
    3. Identify why fracking in the USA is much cheaper than it is in the UK. (8 marks)
    4. To what extent do the advantages of fracking outweigh the disadvantages? (15 marks)
    5. Evaluate the methods that Cuadrilla is undertaking to reduce the risks of fracking in the Flyde.(12 marks)
    6. Identify an appropriate hypothesis to test residents opinions about fracking as described in Item 7 and explain how a questionnaire could help you gather data to prove/disprove the hypothesis. (5 marks)
    7. Explain how an A Level Geography group might select people to answer questions about their opinions on the proposed fracking site. (5 marks)

    Is anyone able to explain what the combined "coal and gas" category that appears in 2017 in the projected electricity sources (p4) of the AIB is?

    anyone know what cuadrilla did about changing their proposals after being rejected earlier regarding traffic

    they said they would build another road, they appealed the application and has gone to the national government. The report comes out on 9th July 2016. However, caudrilla has already starting drilling wells which suggets that it is a done deal.
    I hope that helps

    Would someone be able to send some info on the mann whitney u test and the chi square test - my teacher isn't very involved with this exam at all and I've not really gone over either of the tests
    Had no idea we needed to know this. My teachers being useless as well. Do we really need to know statistical methods?

    Thanks for sharing What would be the answer to this Q
    *UK geology is different to US, UK is more heavily faulted therefore it is more expensive to frack
    *rates of tax in the UK are high, 2/3 of profit can be claimed by the government
    *Caudrilla currently pay 15% tax to Crown estate due to mineral rights.
    *Shale deposits in the Uk are 3x deeper than those found in the US and require 10x more water as a result

    The USA are able to extract a lot more oil from the ground along with a lot more natural gas (shale). Because of this natural gas is beginning to replace oil as a source of power therefore the price of oil will start to fall as the demand for oil decreases.


    The differences in price may be due to the geology of the USA and UK.
    Extracting gas in Europe alone is 2-3 times more expensive due to the geology and regulations that surround the sites. The US also have better technology for fracking-in the UK, our gas deposits are lower and we have smaller basins effectively making it more difficult to frack.

    Cheers. Unless I am missing something in the AIB, isn't this question almost completely based on research outside of the booklet? And if so, how likely is it that they would ask this or a similar question?

    it is based on mainly research, but the US does come up as a topic in the AIB so they would expect you to do research into the area! there are only a certain amount of questions they can ask as they have to be based around information given in the booklet but I'd say it's quite likely they would ask a question similar to this

    There is some info on page 12 about taxes to get you started but ultimately it is down to research. I made a revision card comparing US vs. Uk fracking which has been helpful.

    I would really advise looking on the website given in your zigzag booklet there is some really controversial points on him.

    For example he isnt all he says he is, lies and exaggerates many points
    I dont suppose you could post some links to websites given in that booklet do you? Or any useful information? My teachers are useless..

    One of the questions that we did in a mock paper in school included the question:
    'Your A-level geography group has been asked to undertake a piece of fieldwork to assess whether the opinions regarding proposed fracking vary with distance from the test drilling site. Describe how you would carry out this fieldwork.'

    From the notes that we made in class, this is how I would tackle the question:
    - Hypothesis
    - Sampling Methods (Random, Systematic and Stratified)
    - Identify data collection sites
    - Risk Assessment
    - Create a questionnaire (examples of questions that you might ask)
    - Presentation and analysis of data (examples)

    Hope this helps
    What examples are of presentation,
    and could the analysis be Chi squared or Mann Whitney U?
