    I am sorry but you can not get job in the Merchant Navy. To serve Merchant Navy you must have completed 12th in Science stream with PCM subjects. Since you are Arts student, it is not possible for you to apply.

    You should consider some other career option that suits your qualification criteria. My advice will be to complete graduation and possible post graduation if required.

    For job in Merchant Navy you have to complete B.Sc in Nautical Science or Marine Engineering course. Both are not possible for the Arts student.


    1. Education: 12th standard with PCM.

    2. Age: No more than 20 years.

    3. Age (SC/ST): upto 25 years.

    4. Candidate should not be married.

    5. Course: B.Sc Nautical Science or Marine Engineering.

    6. Physical Requirements: Min height 150cm, vision 6/6 etc.

    Direct Entry

    Complete 12th standard with PCM and apply for the deck cadet job. Upon selection by the company you will have to go through 3 months long pre sea training after which you will get job.

    Complete B.Tech in Mechanical/Technology/Electrical and apply for the various officer level jobs.

    But before you do, it is mandatory to complete 9 months long pre sea course in marine engineering from MERI.
