Hi Madhur,

Psychology is 3 year Under Graduate course and to get admission in this course one need to pass 12th class first. So, after completing 12th in any stream from a recognised university or board you are eligible to apply for Bachelor of Psychology.
So yes, Commerce Students are eligible to get admission in Psychology course. So, if you are interested in this psychology, then apply for this course soon because you are eligible to get the admission in this course. There are many University In India, who offers Psychology course.

Some Psychology Colleges in India:

  • Punjab University.

Dear Aspirant,

Psychologist after taking commerce stream? Are you sure? How did you think upon or decide that Psychology is the career option good for you for your life?

Commerce is a good field and there are many excellent career options in commerce stream to do and get successful. Are you not now wanting to continue with commerce? It appears that you chose Commerce randomly without spending time on thinking about what are your likings, interests, aptitude, capability, etc.

I would again request you to think again.

I think you are still choosing a career randomly or based on some other illusions or opinions.

Taking the Ideal Career Test from is what you need now, before it's late. This is a psychometric test and will analyse your aptitude as well interest areas and suggest you few career options. It is important for you to know what are your strengths, aptitude, likings. 

I think if you have decided on Psychology, you need to shift to BA Psychology based on 12th Commerce percentage.

Best wishes

Hi There,

I would just like to add to the above 2 counselors.

Though as a Commerc graduate you could opt for Psychology, but firstly note that it would be too tough since yoiu do not have the psychology base and secondly you would not be eligibe for certain specializations like Clinical and Industrial Psychology.

Though you can study the above mentioned specilaizations from an open university, but look for one that provides internships.

In  my opinion, in case you looking to master in psychology, opt for guidance and counseling, which will help you in terms of becoming a Career guidance counselor.

Hope this helps.

Wish you good luck...
