Mental health

I'm a final year student pursuing my bachelor's of technology degree in Engineering Physics at Delhi Technological University. I've always wanted to contribute to the science community and pursue research as my career. And now, when the time has finally come, I feel as if I don't know physics anymore. I can solve any problem pertaining to mathematical and physical sciences but I don't really know what it is that I end up feeling like I don't know these sciences the way I used to know before. As a matter of fact, I have always been among the top students when it comes to physics; given my Physics score for JEE Advance was 115/120. Also, I have done well in all my exams but it doesn't feel the same anymore. And not knowing what the reason is, makes it all the more disturbing and annoying. And the consequences are all extremely negative as I am unable to focus on my health, and academics. In short my efficiency and productivity has hit the lowest of levels & a fightback seems impossible.

Hello, I can understand how exasperating this must be for you. But are there also any other emotional disturbances, bodily changes or any stressors triggering this will be important to know. It may be part of an ongoing depressive episode or a case of burnout. Adapt healthy lifestyle changes, take a break and seek consultation with a therapist in person to understand & overcome the difficulties better.
