Just a quick little question, but I'm not the strongest of swimmers, will this be detrimental for me down the line if i successfully make the cut?

If your job requires you to swim, you will be properly instructed how to do it the army way.

I spent the full 28 weeks of training getting thrown in the sea pretty much every day, while not knowning how to swim. You'll be fine.

You can apply, but unless you did something dishonest like memorise the correct answers which correspond to the correct Ishihara plate then you won't get in...

Also, to the swimmer guy, why not spend the next while improving your swimming technique? It's one of the things that people should learn before they turn 5. It could save your life whether you are in the army or not.


<disclaimer>Not in DF, just some general advice</disclaimer>

Swimming is a fancy name for not drowning in an aquatic environment!

One more question.. (for now)
My BMI is currently at 30, I know that's the max the army allows and I know It's not an accurate system..
but would the medical centre do a caliper test as im at 30?
I'm by all means not a fat ****e or anything... may be lugging around a few extra pounds but they wont be there for long..
I've seen people twice my width and weight less ya know..
So to recap my question is:
Will the Army do a Caliper test as I'm at 30 BMI

They will first note your height / weight and age and gain a rough BMI using a scale chart.

If you are over the BMI they will do an accurate test with the calipers.

What is the BMI limit before they do a callipers test? I'm typically around 26-26.5, which is over the 25 normal line, but that's when I'm in my best shape.
