see there is not many difference between bsc in psychology or b.a in psychology syllabus, however bsc course is more job oriented than b.a course, and the syllabus includes more practical training and exposures related with to deal with the human being with certain problems and give solutions. also knowledge of maths helps to understand the behavioral science more accurately. however b.a in psychology has more of theoretical approach, since you are not interested for maths you should go for b.a in psychology.
i want to give pcs exam i had PCB with psychology in 12t now i m confused that what graduation should i do ..i m confused between bsc and ba hons psychology from Geu or UPES dehradun plz help me out i dont want to do maths i just really cannot solve it so plz guide me what graduation should i do
I'll recommend you to do either bsc in non maths subjects though in physics serious maths is there in graduation so don't try it. As you had psychology in 12th then you can go for ba psychology it's a good choice from the colleges you have mentioned as you have prior knowledge about the subject you'll feel it easy and can prepare for state PCS and the course will help you in your interview and in your entire life while dealing with people.
