    Jawh For any medical and physical examination, more than appearance (Depending upon its severity) the functionality is checked. If you have no issues working with your hands ti won't be a problem. Similarly, if your eyesight is fine and no issues working in high temperature or cold climate, you will do fine.

    I read the medical requirements for a merchant Navy. One of the physical / medical requirements is under the skeletal system of individual as stated below. Can such person still study Marine Engineering and is marine engineering different from Merchant Navy.

    skeletal system
    There should be no disease or impairment of functions of bones or joints, contracture or of deformity of chest or any joint, abnormal curvature of spine, deformity of feet like bow legs, knock knees, flat feet, deformity of upper limbs, malformation of the head, deformity from fractures or depression of the skull, deformity or uneven bending of the spinal column, fractures (healed) with a pin inside will be a disqualification.

      Yes. The extent of deformation will also come into play. If this is due to any ailment issue etc. it may be a road blocker.

    No, it is not due to ailment. It's natural

      Jawh Still, the functionality will be checked and compared to the standard requirements. I will suggest to consult an maritime approved medical practitionar once.

        Your eye sight has to be minimum +2.5 or -2.5, you can’t exceed this. Also, you can’t be color blind and you must not have any type of eye diseases.
