do specify by which subjects we can study psycology
If you are a students of XI ,& XII , & you have a psychology as a main subjects ,then you can appear in CPMT to become psychiatrist medicine . otherwise it is not necessary to have a biology for study psychology as a career . a students with arts background with psychology optional paper can also peruse psychology in his masters . biology is a additional feature & a very supportive to learn fundamental concepts of behavioral science & minds . Usually students with biological background do better than others students. again personality , ability to work hard ,ability to maintain proper social skills ,adequate emotional intelligence & IQ are very important features to become success in psychological profession.
Before I answer your query.My question to you is Do you wish to pursue a B.Sc or a BA in Psychology.
When you attain a B.Sc in Psychology, though you do not have Biology as a separate subject, but Psychology and Biology are interlined.Though they would emphasize on studying Biology and its connection with the mind.When it comes to BA in Psychology, though the student knows bits and parts of biology, since Psychology is mind science, they are more exposed to concepts of Psychology in relation to Psychometric assessments and therapies.
So based on the degree you opt for the subjects would follow.
Generally someone interested in Criminology or forensic Psychology at the masters level, opts for a B.Sc in Psychology.
Hope this helps.
Wish you good luck...............

No. You do not require to have biology as a subject to become a psychologist. After 12th, you can pursue either BSc or BA, then MSc or MA, and PhD. To become a clinical psychologist, you can do MPhil in clinical psychology. However, biology helps you study clinical psychology better. There is one subject in masters course, psycho-biology or biological basis of bahavior.
If you are looking forward to bece psychiatrist, you need biology and complete MBBS. After MBBS, you can opt for MD in psychiatry to become psychiatrist.
Hope this is helpful. Best Wishes,Apurva Kumar Pandya, PhD
