Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

At your age usually the problem is due to loss of concentration resulting in decreased memory power. Practice relaxation techniques like breath relaxation excercises daily as it will help you relax and focus and eases your anxiety. Study in small shifts of half an hour followed by a rest of five minutes. Set small targets and try to achieve them. Foods rich in antioxidants and omega fatty acids also helps. If still problem persists, then consult a psychiatrist in person for evaluation.
