Online Test 1 (for PCM and Reasoning) 100 questions - 2 hrs. Level - very easy, involving only a few numerical questions. Preparation - Prepare the entire syllabus (pdf) of Deck Cadet entrance exam which is provided on the AEMA website. No questions will be asked out of the syllabus. Most questions are based on the theory of topics listed in the syllabus. I mostly used Arihant's Encyclopaedia of General Science for main preparation and NCERTs for reference. Reasoning part is also very easy. You can use Reasoning books of CDS or SSC CGL exams for preparation (if required). Maths was mostly simple Arithmetic with basic Geometry and Trigonometry. Online Test 2 (Psychometric Test) 240 questions with no specific time limit. Objective questions (simple questions based on day-to-day life) like "Have you ever felt that your life is not meaningful?" will be asked to analyze your personal traits. Read the questions carefully and then answer them. Many a time they'll ask the same thing using different words, to confuse you. Do not get affected. This test is also very easy. Finish this test to obtain your results and proceed to the Interviews. After the results are announced by the staff, they'll give you a Bio-data form. (Name, Qualification, Father's Name, Mother's Name, Address, Contact Details, HOBBIES, EXTRA-CURRICULARS, etc.) Fill out the form neatly and carefully as the non-academic questions in interviews will be based on this information only. Along with this form, you'll be given 2 sheets to write 2 essays. Essay 1 Statement of Purpose, 300-400 words, no specific time limit. Question: Why do you want to join the Merchant Navy? Write in about using the following points: What motivates you to join the Merchant Navy? What value would you add to Anglo-Eastern Group after you are selected? What duties and roles would you like to hold onboard? What is your career plan in the Merchant Navy? Where do see yourself 5 years AND 10 years down the line? How do you plan to cope up with the feeling of homesickness that eventually arises in this profession? Essay 2 Any topic like that of a GD, 300-400 words, no specific time limit. My topic was "Compare India's recent growth with the other countries of Asia" Interview 1 Mostly academic, (Ex- INDIAN NAVY Commodore) After going through my Bio-data form and essays... Tell me about yourself, family background, why do you want to join Merchant Navy? Explain the career plan (with duration of each course) of a Deck Cadet through DNS. Academic questions: 1. How does an aircraft fly? 2. What is the principle of floatation? What is Archimedes' principle? How does a ship float? 3. Why does ice float on water? What do you mean by Anomalous Expansion of water? 4. What is the chemical formula of Nitric Acid? 5. What is the general formula for Alkynes (hydrocarbons)? 6. What are the types of bonds in Benzene? 7. What is the chemical formula of Sugarcane? 8. Why do seasons exist? 9. What is Greenhouse Effect? What is Global Warming? 10. What is Tanθ in terms of the sides of a triangle? 11. What is a cube + b cube? 12. What is cos(A-B)? Interview 2 Similar to HR Interview (Captain from Anglo-Eastern Ship Management) After going through my Bio-data form and essays...
