    Re: How to join Merchant Navy after 12th?

    You basically have two options available to join the Merchant Navy stream. The first is to join after your 12th standard. For this you must have pursued Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics during your 12th standard. There is a minimum age requirement of 18 years for the same. You will need to appear for the various entrance exams like IGNOU, IIT- JEE etc. On clearing this exam you will need to undergo Pre sea training. On completion of the course you will be eligible to join as a deck cadet. The other option is join after you complete Marine engineering. You can also join after completing Mechanical engineering but you will need to undergo a training period for the same. You have the option to join either Indian companies or Foreign companies. Most of these companies have their offices in Mumbai, Calcutta.

    There are basically two ways by which one can pursue a Career in Merchant Navy. One joins in Merchant navy as an officer or as a rating. This is also further divided in to Marine Engineering and Nautical. As to become a seafarer one needs to on go with a pre-sea training. This is available only for Indian citizens.

    There are two ways to get into the Merchant Navy. As you complete your +2 you can apply for the DECK cadet & after completing your graduation in Marine Engineering you can get into the Merchant Navy. As you have the +2 you can apply for the post of DECK CADET in Merchant Navy.
