Indian Navy has introduced computer-based examination for the selection of Direct Entry Officers after graduation.
Indian Navy Entrance Test (INET) will be conducted twice a year from September this year.
University Entry Scheme(UES) and Combined Defence Services (CDS) entries will also continue.
According to the Navy, INET (Officers) will be used for screening for Permanent Commission and Short Service Commission Officer candidates for all graduate entries other than those that are screened by UPSC or University Entry Scheme.
The exam will have four sections, viz English, Reasoning and Numerical Ability, General Science and Mathematical Aptitude, and General Knowledge (GK).
Aspiring candidates will need to pass in each section to be considered for Services Selection Board (SSB) call up.
Candidates will be called up for SSB interview on the basis of performance in INET (Officers) and their entry preference.
To be eligible for final Merit List, candidates would need to qualify in SSB and subsequent Medical Examination.
Merit List will be declared on the basis of marks scored in INET (Officers) and SSB marks.
Selected candidates will undergo Basic Training at the Indian Naval Academy.
