I think the secret this summer was having a stupidly low 120 UMS grade boundary. 56/80 is a joke lol

I'm sure there is more to the theory than you have understood. That's why I wanted to ask you a question on the theory to know if you have genuinely understood it.

The IAL paper was quite easy in my opinion, and GB was 50/80 for A lol.. so probably like 64-65 for 120 UMS

I honestly hope it will be low too in January 2016 session, I would love a calculation-based paper.

Yeah it was I couldn't believe Unit 2 was higher @ 63/80. Anyway I doubt it'll be <=56 for full for a long time. Maybe 60-65 like you said this year

True, 120 was at 56 last year but I didn't do too poorly in other units. Physics unit 1 is always pretty low. June 2014 IAL unit 2 was also crazy low but I remember that to be quite an easy paper

I'm kinda confused in this question, i thought the answer was related to laminar/turbulent and its relation to speed.

However, In the mark scheme its related to depth of water and drag, could you explain me this?

It's from the June 2015 IAL paper.

Have no idea if I got it right (I think I did), but I remember writing about how there is a lower cross sectional area, and so there would be more more water entering a smaller area which may lead to more turbulent flow and thus create drag.
