Postby yuanz » Sun, 20 May 2007 9:28 pm

Hi i've been following this forum for a few months and aspire to be an air stewardess a few years later.. but i'm concern abt certain issues.. cause my eyesight is about 1000 degrees, will it lower the chance of being selected though i do wear contacts? and how is the water confidence test like? is it swimming laps? i hope someone can enlighten me abt these issues thanks ! :D

for more info on the water confidence test, you might like to check out the existing thread on it. It's basically jumping into the pool and swim to the end. I believe there's no laps.

Yuanz,
Please do not make multiple posts containing the same question. You have already started a thread here which should be good enough. I have deleted your other posting as other moderators would; that way some space can be saved in the database.

Well,first of all your eyesight should NOT be a problem as you are allowed to use contact lenses..Didn't you read my post on the vision thread???

Anyway,the WCT procedure goes like this,You wwill be required to jump down from a mock plane of about 1 storey high into a 3m deep swimming pool WITH A LIFEVEST..Once you are in the water you will need to do a backstroke of 50m and that is it..Haha,I hope this helps..If you don't know what is backstroke I will explain,once you are afloat in the water,lie on your back and kick..Then you're done!! :) :) :)

Is it not 25m or has that been changed?
