    Re: How to join in Merchant Navy? What is the required criteria to join Merchant Navy?

    A candidate for the physics, chemistry and the 12th with Maths.Since need to be clear, you did not mention which you are.If section I mentioned with those subjects who are students of science stream 12th.you score less than 55% in the first in 10 +2 ie 60% of the marks must be recognized board or university with a monastery in India, and as their main subject physics, chemistry. U interested in joining the Marine Engineering discipline, with an option will appear in the IIT entrance exam. Once you qualify, you either integrated into the curriculum or Puna DMET Kolkata and Chennai to Mumbai or private college for four years to go.

    Then you joke Surface Transport 'A' certificate from the Ministry will find blue label. As fifth engineer then you are entitled to join the Merchant Navy. either as an apprentice in some internal competition test into the dock. You ship 18 months of an apprenticeship or Mumbai, Chennai or Kolkata for examination in the Ministry of Surface Transport TRG meeting will unfold. Subject mainly mathematics, naval architecture, marine engineering, etc.
