    Candidates who have completed their 12th standard are eligible to join merchant navy. This is provided they have pursued Physics, Chemistry and Maths as the area of specialisation. This should have been pursued from a recognised institute. Also the minimum percentage required in the qualifying subjects is 55% in most institutes. Relaxation in this criteria is there in some institutes for those who belong to SC/ST category. So if you donot belong to this category you will certainly not be eligible for this stream. You can visit the site of DG shipping to know the details of this stream.

    If you are trying to join the Merchant navy after 12th standard then it will be a bit difficult for you on this percentage.
    I guess you must do the graduation courses and then apply for the UES entry scheme , on that your 12th percentage will not matter .
    But your graduation percentage must be atleast 60%.
    university entry scheme selections are made on the technical field and will make you to occupy higher post.

    Hello,
    Yes you are eligible for Merchant Navy. Yes 12th marks mattrers in all the exam where the eligibility criteria depends on 12th exam marks. So if you want to take admission in B Tech then you should have passed in 12th exam then you will be eligible for this. If you do B Tech in Mechanical engineering that will give better opportunities compare to others.
