If you have seen my previous blogs Step by Step guide to join Merchant Navy After 12. I had mentioned about this point also. Why you need a mentor is because experience is everything in Merchant Navy. A mentor can tell you pros and cons of Merchant Navy which ultimately help you to choose your path. You are like a new born baby in Merchant navy world. You have no idea about what will be there out at sea,what you will have to face,how difficult is life onboard ship. A good Mentor will help you give a good idea about this field and you can rethink about your idea more clearly.

4. Choosing Best Merchant Navy College.
Frankly saying, In Merchant Navy cheating cases has been reported highly. Some cheats you by becoming agents, some cheats by fake institute. As the course fee is high, cheating level is also high. Be aware, choose wisely, take enough information before joining. Institute provides you placement if your performance is upto their requirements.
In my opinion, anyone intrested in doing job rather than studying can do GP Rating Course and can join Merchant navy at an early age.
