Every year Officer Cadets are used to be recruited in the Naval Academy in two batches but due the induction of BSc honours and BBA courses, officer cadets are recruited once in a year. For selection Naval Headquarters calls up the candidates for a written and preliminary medical test. Then they have to qualify the Inter Services Selection Board (ISSB) and the suitable candidates are to appear again before a board in the Naval Headquarters for final selection. The same procedure equally applies to Direct Entry Officers, who after their graduation join navy. The Direct Entry Officers after selection,  join BNA as per the training curriculum set by the Naval Headquarters. To know details about the joining criterion please click
