    You have not mentioned the area of specialisation in 12th standard. You are eligible to join the stream only if you have studied Physics, Chemistry, Maths and English in 12th standard. Also only those who have secured 60% at least in the same will be eligible. So you are eligible if you secured the same in these subjects. The age limit to apply is 20 years. Clearing entrance exam will be a must. You will be joining in as a deck cadet.

    The minimum eligibility to join in Merchant Navy is Completing your 12th with Physics,Maths,Chemistry subject and your percentage need to be minimum of 60%.

    To join in Merchant navy you need to apply for NDA exam.

    NDA stands for National Defense Academy.

    NDA is the Entrance exam for entering in to NAVY,ARMY,AIR FORCE.

    NDA exam is conducted by UPSC .

    To apply for NDA exam visit the official website of UPSC at :- http://www.upsc.gov.in

    To apply for NDA exam:-
    • You need to have completed your 12th.
    • You need to have minimum of 60% in your 12th.
    • Your age need to be between 16.5 to 19 years.
    • Age relaxation is only for SC/ST and OBC .
    • To apply for Army wing then you need to have completed your 12th from any stream.
    • But for Navy and Air Force you need to have completed your 12th with Physics,Chemistry and Maths subjects.
