JEE Main - new eligibility criteria for entry to Indian Navy as officers

the new eligibility criteria for entry to Indian Navy as officers Indian Navy will now shortlist aspiring candidates to its 10+2 B.Tech cadet entry scheme on the basis of their performance in Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) Main. Earlier, the candidates were shortlisted to this Indian Naval Academy (INA) scheme on the basis of percentage of class XII marks in Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics (PCM), which will no longer be considered for entry to 10+2 B.Tech cadet entry scheme.

The decision has been taken to curb the uneven quality of candidates coming for Services Selection Board (SSB) interview or training, as per a report by The Economic Times.

"Different state examination boards have gone berserk in awarding high marks in Class XII. We were finding the quality of candidates coming for the SSB interview or training very uneven," a senior Navy officer told the national daily.  

 

The officer was further quoted sharing with the national daily that the JEE Main ranks, which the CBSE has agreed to share with us, will be a better benchmark. With the government approving the move, youngsters will have to appear for the JEE Main in 2017 to be eligible for the January 2018 course at INA.

 

As per the new selection criteria, around 120 candidates will be shortlisted to appear in Services Selection Board (SSB) for interviews based on their JEE Main scores.

 

Currently, along with the 10+2 B. Tech cadet entry scheme, the Indian Navy officer level recruitment happens through National Defence Academy (NDA) where the navy recruits 78 cadets for three-year course at the tri-service NDA. Further, these cadets have to undergo another year of rigorous training at the INA and then they are commissioned as officers with B.Tech degrees.

 

Another mode of entry to the Indian Navy is UPSC, wherein the Indian Navy shortlists 110 candidates to directly join the INA for 4-year-B.Tech programmes. Shortlisting of candidates through this mode takes place in two batches every year.
