Answer
Hello Rahul,

I am very sorry for my late answer and also for your struggle.
It is very natural to feel lost after you experience this situation but maybe you should think a little bit about your past successes and the things that you did well before and consider the fact that if you knew how to do that in the past, it is still possible in the present time. You just have to remember the feeling of success and the feelings of being strong and prepared and after that you should try to consider the possibility of passing that exam. Think about the future and the day after the exam and all the joy that will come with your successful examination.
Regarding the other issue maybe you could consider addressing that to a local psychotherapist. Sexuality is a very complex aspect of our life and it will be more relevant for you if you discuss this face to face with a therapist.

I wish you all the best,
