Non-IMU-CET Candidates  Can Now Take Admission in Merchant Navy Courses

According to a circular recently released by D.G shipping, there are major changes in how non IMU-CET candidates can take admission in graduate merchant navy courses, including BTech in Marine Engineering, BSc in Nautical Science, and DNS leading to BSc in Nautical Science.

In order to get admission into Merchant Navy Courses, DG Shipping has set certain new criteria. The eligibility criteria also include clearing IMU CET examinations apart from educational qualifications.

The IMU-CET exam is conducted to get admission in the following courses: 1. BTech in Marine Engineering 2. BSc in Nautical Science 3. Diploma in Nautical Science

in the academic year 2021-22, due to Covid-19, DG Shipping informed that IMU-CET and online counseling shall not be applicable to take admissions into the above marine courses.

Marine Training Institutes (MTIs) were allowed to follow their own admission process and counseling methodology for the year 2021-22.

The Directorate General of shipping received numerous requests from candidates saying that the IMU-CET exam was conducted when they were having their CBSE 12th board exams, which is why they were not able to appear for the examination.
