Hello Bavleen,

Congratulations on clearing class 10th and on your score too.

In terms of subjects, it totally depends on the college you seek admission in.

 

Some colleges offer Logic with psychology, while some offer political science and sociology.

 

Never the less, whichever subject you choose, see to it that one paper is Psychology till 12th.

 

After 12th, pursue a BA in Psychology. Incase if you opt for an MA in Clinical Psychology from SNDT Womens University, then please note their criteria for admission is 6 papers in Psychology at the graduate ( BA) level.

On a personal note, I shifted to SNDT in the 2nd year of BA, because I had planned MA from SNDT University. But it is completely your choice.

 

Any Institute that you opt for, please see to it that internships and assessments training are provided.

Anyways, please note that, now it is a rule or provision from RCI that to function as a Clinical Psychologist, the minimum qualification requirement is an M.Phil. So if you wish to sign as a Clinical Psychologist, see to it that, you pursue an M.Phil

Or else, you could function as a Counselor or Psychologist, but cannot label yourself as " Clinical" psychologist.

 

A Clinical Psychologist has opportunities in various fields depending on your interest, right from:

  • Hospitals
  • Clinics / Polyclinics
  • NGO
  • Counseling centres / organizations
  • In association with doctors and Psychiatrist
  • Own practice
  • School counselor
  • Career counselors

I would suggest that apart from the degree, if possible pursue certifications in Hypnosis, play therapy, career guidance, DMIT, NLP etc.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Wish you good luck...
