JEE Main Score will be accepted for Entry Scheme in India Navy. The candidates aspiring to join B.Tech cadet entry scheme after 10+2 will have to appear in JEE (Main), an All India Joint Entrance Exam. However, this proposal still awaits government's approval.

A senior officer said 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".

The India Navy is being hi-tech with the state of the Art warship, Weapons, Sensors. The Navy wants sea warriors capable of handling the challenges of the massive technological revolution under way. The Indian Navy implemented plans to ensure virtually all its new officers have B Tech degrees, apart from the traditional military and leadership skills, when they graduate from the Indian Naval Academy in Kerala. Now, the short-listing of candidates aspiring to join the force through the 10+2 B Tech cadet entry scheme will be based only on “JEE (Main) ranks” achieved in the all-India joint entrance exam conducted for admission into different engineering colleges. And now, PCM (physics, chemistry, and maths) marks percentage obtained in the Class XII board exams will not be valid.

"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 (services selection board) interview or training very uneven," said a senior officer.

The first direct-entry batch of B. Tech officers passed out from the INA in May 2013. Since then, the Navy has been planning for three officer entry schemes. First are the naval cadets who undergo the three-year course at the tri-service National Defence Academy (NDA) at Kadakwasla (Pune) after clearing the UPSC exam and SSB interview. These 78 cadets get commissioned as officers with B Tech degrees after another year of intensive training at the INA. Then, there are the around 110 cadets who directly joined the INA for the four-year B Tech program after clearing UPSC exams in two batches every year. Under the third and largest scheme, around 120 cadets will now be shortlisted for the SSB interview only on the basis of their JEE (Mains) ranks.
