AQA May 16 2016 Unit 1 Context 1Watch
Hope you've all done well!
Has anyone done Context 1 in today's AQA exam?
If so, what did you write in question 02 (the data question with the two significant points of difference in between the two years of the various energy sources)?
Highest percentage for each year and comparing values for renewable energy....wbu
I said that coal was 36.6% in 2013 as compared to 23% or however much in 2014, a more than 50% decrease in the % makeup of coal's making up of the electricity mix, as coal has been overtaken by Gas as the largest source of elec production, with 35% or so in 2014 from 20% in 2013, an almost 50% increase. (I partially made up the %s in this comment ofc)
And then to make sure I compared how renewable sources made up 13.5% in 2013 as compared to Nuclear energy in 2014 as 20% and then how renewable sources made up 17.5% in 2014 as compared to Nuclear energy's 23.5% in 2013.
So I pretty much jumbled it all up in the hopes of not missing stuff.
I usually do the mistake of comparing the highest with the lowest in these questions, and this question was about two significant differences in between the two different years.
It also seems as though extremely few people have gone for context 1.
anyone who did context 1, please reply!
what did you write for the 12 marker, the question was something to do with "explain why fracking needs regulation" something along those lines
Also, what did you write for the 25 mark,again something along the lines of "to what extent should markets be encouraged to develop renewable energies"
let me know, hope everyone aces this. Thankssss!
For 25 marker, i spoke about subsidies and min price for gov intervention. The for free market i referred to extract A saying that renewable energy consumption is increasing in free market, so will provide incentive etc
For 12 marker i spoke about external costs, negative externalities, used msc diagram
For 25 marker, i spoke about subsidies and min price for gov intervention. The for free market i referred to extract A
saying that renewable energy consumption is increasing in free market, so will provide incentive etc
To be fair i didnt wrote all of those points. For the 12 marker i wrote without regulation there is possible monopoly threat
For the 25 marker i didwrite about subsidises, but also price max, gov intervention & gov failure
