hey there, I know there is a thread that is all about the swim test and have read through it but did not find an answer to my question. Basically , one of the swim requirements for the test is "You must also somersault into the water without a life jacket, tread water for 2 minutes and then swim 20 metres." Now the swimming part I am fine with but the one thing I am concerned about , which is kind of embarrassing, but I can't do a somersault one bit. No matter how many times I try I just can't do them, used to when I was young but not anymore. So basically my question is, does it really matter if you do a complete somersault or one at all to get into the water or do they not really care as long as you can do the swimming part?
