  3. From what i've read you do a couple laps of the pool without touching the side and then tread water for 2 minutes. I think this is in full kit and you have to be able to climb out unaided.

    Yes as has been mentioned the Army swimming test, which you only have to do once, although I did it twice for some strange reason. But don't worry, if you can't swim the Army will teach you. It's not a bar to joining.
