Attention Deficiency Hyperactivity
I don't wanna sound paranoid but I think I have ADHD. I'm 22 years old. Above average student since school. Got 80%+ in almost any exam without really trying. But there was one problem. Focus. I didn't study for 10% of the time other topper used to study.. I just couldn't. Maybe that's just laziness? But I don't think so because I can't even if I try to. I can't focus on one source I'd worry about the other being more right. (YKWIM?) I'm trying to crack a competitive exam and I'm hopeless.. because I just cannot focus. What should I do?

Hello, Adhd is different from being unable to focus. More often as you have mentioned that you probably required very few hours of dedicated attention over to your studies which have been your habit patterns. Probably this might be working at your back end. When you say that you are appearing for a competitive examination these would also have made you enroll to a training centres' meaning a lot of mock exams would have been conducted in the form of practice tests so due to that to you would have been able to perceive the progress sheet of your studies. At 22 there are many reasons for a person to get distracted one needs to know what is the leading causes of getting distractable if it's particularly while making attempts to your competitive examination which would determine the future prospects of the career you are about to choose post it.
