Hi Babe..


There'll be a weight & height measurement before u gurls have the dip. :D

U'll be wearing a lifevest, jumping down a mock plane.

When u resurface, lie on ur back and paddle to the end. Backstroke, wadever..

when u're out of the pool, u'll be asked to walk towards an interviewer.

She'll check out ur body..
:)

Ur body shape, scars and tattoos.

Hi Luxe,

Water confi test is actually quite fun! Dun worry if u do not know how to swim cos there will be life vast for everyone. When the person says 'jump' u just jump and dun hesitate. Do not struggle in the pool, u'll resurface abt 2-3secs... relax and then backstroke back to the end of the pool. That's about it. Smile when u get up of the pool. :)

Hope this helps.

YEs honey..

They'll get your height and weight again... :)

Well, u should wear formal.

But at my tym, most gurls were in casual.

I myself was in a shirt and denim skirt.... Hmm.... :shock:

Some were in shorts, jeans, spag top and even slippers. *grinz*

Passing rate is normally good.

They DO NOT scrutinise you ... as long as your skin is fairly clear ... mozzie bites are not permanent they will understand... so please do not fret and be confident. I do feel that airbrush or deliberate cover ups may leave you more conscious and affect your performance.
During my experience, the girls with make up keep asking each other if their mascara came off. or if their pimples are showing...

tatoos that will not be covered by the kebaya is a NO NO. those that can be covered I suggest you put on swim suit that covers as well... just in case.

I think bikinis are fine cos all the girls wearing bikinis got in during my time. Just make sure it does not get detached from you after the jump. A one piece swim suit however seem more approprite for the occasion.

the passing rate has been consistently high since last year. those that did not get in usually have height problems.... and of course if you dont jump... (please jump its fun).

Good Luck you are really almost there! MOst of all be WATER CONFIDENT!

Couldn't find an answer for my question so I'm sorry if this has been asked and answered before.

Is the result for water confidence test immediate? If no, roughly how long will they take?

yes you have to "lie" on your back and paddle across, either do backstroke, or just kick your way across the pool.

basically if it was a real life situation and you had to save a passenger, there's no way you can wear the vest, swim frogstyle, and also pull the passenger. hence, the backstroke.
