You do not need a psychologist or a counsellor to evaluate your questionnaire.
Just fill out the questionnaire and give it to your siblings or your parents to vividly know your interest, which could be revealed, if most of the answers to the questions are similar in nature.
Copy down your answers separately on a sheet and evaluate the similarities.

Here is an example to evaluate your interest:

If most of the answers are related to artistic things and creativity, with open mindedness, then Humanities or Home Economic is good for you.
In the same manner, do for the rest.
Best of luck for your future endeavors to embark upon!
