    BSc Nautical science is the subject to be studied by the merchant navy aspirants to work as officers in the ship, other two areas being ngineering and then the support staff like boarding cleaning and laundry.
    But to get admission to BSc Nautical science you need to pass +2 with Maths Physics and chemistry with minimum 60%.
    So being a commerce student it may not be possible.
    All the best for your future.
