  3. I just did mine. On the acquaint you only have to pass the swimming aspect with out overalls (pass/fail - still can be sent home) . If you pass that you go on to do the military swim test with *treading water and overalls. It does not matter if you fail that.

  8. It's good, I had mine in December. The swim test is not a test of fitness, just swimming ability. Nobody in our group took over 2 mins. The military swim in overalls is quite hard, however all but 2 of our group managed it, so should be fine. It's a great lead up to Raleigh tho and gets you in the mindset. Where you going, Collingwood or Caledonia?

    Just a "heads-up" with regard the swimming element on PRNC - a large number (about 20%) arrive unable to reach the standard required to pass the swimming test at HMS Raleigh.

    For those waiting to join the service - don't underestimate the swimming element of your physical preparations!
  18. I was at Collingwood last mon-Thurs too.

  19. The swimming test, does it have to be in a technique or can it be any?
