    hello
    No you cant join merchant navy. only science background candidates are eligible for merchant navy. Candidates wishing to enter the navigational and engineering fields of Merchant Navy need to complete their B.Sc. degree in mechanical or marine engineering, before they can gain admission to the field. In some cases, students who have completed their 12th with PCM (Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics) are eligible to join as Deck Cadets.

    Dear friend,

    => Sorry to say, you cannot attend for merchant navy..
    => As you are from commerce stream..you cannot opt for merchant navy..
    => Merchant navy takes the person who are from maths and science stream..
    => So you are not eligible to do this course friend..
    => But you have other options like Chartered accountancy course..
    => And you can also opt for B.COM graduation.. and try to get good and high paying jobs...
    => Think and take the decision based on your interest...

    Best of luck..
