    Hello Vaishali,
    Well for the past few years, women are making there way to merchant navy in great numbers, good to see that. Also, you have to decide in which line you want to go, deck or engine.

    See always go for those merchant academy having good placement records. IMI, Noida, had four girls cadet last year. Tolani, Samundra etc also have lots of girls cadet. So, you can contact some of them. In today date, every good maritime college have a counselor of their own.

    Ask if any more doubt and best of luck. Oh! yes don't forget to like us on FB for more updates.

    Hello Vikram,

    Since you have done, you can go for GME course. For that, you need to give IMU CET, or direct admission to colleges, depending on their policies.

      Hello Avisha,

      Well Yes, IMU Kolkata no doubt is very good. But other institutes like tolani, samundra etc have good placement records. But a candidates should personally check, the records before coming to any conclusion, as market is flooded with cadets these days. Under 200 rank is good.
