    Re: How to join merchant navy?

    You have two options available to join Merchant Navy. Either you can join after completing your 12th standard or you can do so after Marine Engineering course. If you plan to join after 12th you need to have pursued Physics and Mathematics along with Chemistry in 12th standard. After this you will need to appear for the various entrance exams like OPENNET, Joint Entrance Exam etc. On clearing this test you will also need to attend an interview in most institutes. Thereafter on selection you will undergo a pre-sea training. The duration of the course is 9-12 months. If you plan to join after engineering then you can join the technical side. On completion of the course you need to approach various companies. If selected you will need to sail for a minimum of 6-9 months at a stretch depending on the contract.

    Re: How to join merchant navy?

    The first thing to do after pursuing the TENTH is joining into +2 with science stream as this is the basic thing to handle the Merchant Navy exam. As you complete your 12th you have a option to choose a job in the Merchant Navy you should write the AIMNET(ALL INDIA MERCHANT NAVY ENTRANCE TEST), there you can select the deck cadet as you complete your 12th. OR . As you complete your 12th you can pursue B.Tech Naval Architecture or B.Tech Marine Engineering to get into the posts as Junior Engineer, Asst Engineer in the Merchant Navy.

    ALL THE BEST!!!!!!!
