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 careerguide.com 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.
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...
first you have to go for graduation in psychology, which would make your foundation and further you have to go for post graduation
