    Re: Eligibility criteria to join Merchant Navy.

    You can join the merchant navy either after completion of 12th standard or after Marine engineering. Since you have not mentioned the stream taken in engineering can state clearly whether you are eligible or not. If we take only the 12standard then you will need to join on the deck side. There are various entrance exams like IGNOU, IIT - JEE etc. which you need to appear for.Then there will be a one year training. After completing your sea time for the next post as the 2nd mate also there are exams which you need to clear. For each post there will be exams which you need to clear to become a Captain. However the marks you have scored in both 12th and graduation is less. You need to have at least a 50%. So you will need to look for other career options.

    As you have completed your engineering the direct entry scheme to Merchant Navy is suitable for you. The students must complete their 12th with PCM are eligible to join the Merchant Navy as a Deck Cadets. The applicant with a B.E or B.Tech in Mechanical, Electrical, or Technology Engineering can join the Merchant navy as an Engine Cadet, Fifth Engineer or as a Junior Engineer. The Direct entry Deck Cadets have to go through a basic pre-sea training. This is mandatory to all the candidates. This training is organized by the recruiting company itself. These Engineering cadets are required to do Pre-sea course which is for 9 months duration. These courses are offered in different Marine Engineering institutions by the MERI.

    but now you have completed engineering.
    you have not specified which branch you have taken in engineering.
    marine engg students are eligible for merchant navy.
    so further details you search in mearchant navy website.

    In order to join in the flying branch of Air force, one should have completed his graduation.

    Here i am providing the various modes through which one can make his entry into the flying branch of Airforce.

    1) Combined Defence Services Examination (CDSE)

    Eligibility :
    -Unmarried male
    -Belong to age group of 19-23 years
    -Should of Indian
    -Should have completed his graduation from a recognized university (with Physics, Mathematics, at 10+2)
    -Final year students can also apply

    2)National Cadet Corps Special Entry (Through CO NCC Unit / DG NCC)
    As a air Wing Senior division 'C' certificate holder of the National Cadet Corps, you can apply to flying branch.

    Remaining eligibility criteria would be the same as the above mode of entry.

    yes there is no such restriction for you.
    you have to be a B.E./ M.E. in Marine Engineering or else a B.Sc. in Nautical Science.
    For all these courses you have to have the basic 10+2 level qualification.
    In your twelfth standard exam you need to maintain a minimum 55 % aggregate (60 % in the subjects of Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics and 50% in the subject of English).

    Re: Eligibility criteria to join Merchant Navy.

    Merchant navy is a very bright career option which like others requires atleast 60% in 10+2 with science stream and also in graduation.Unfortunately you fall well below the minimum level which disqualifies you from joining the merchant navy or giving any related exam.RLSAT is a very good exam for merchant navy which provides a degree from BITS,Pilani in nautical sciences but has the same criteria of atleast 60% in 12th.You better try for some other career option.
