Quadriceps Exercises- Lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core Strengthening Exercise- Straight Leg Raised With Toes Turned Outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams Stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. repeat 10 times, twice a day.

Sir, what i can make out is .. to give your best in the physical test you overstressed your ligaments . Which now os causing problem as pain on the side of knee doing sprint for long, high jumps lead to excessive stress on ligaments and muscles
Next Steps
What i will suggest to you is first and foremost apply ice packs to knee joint so that the pain and swelling subsides which will give time to repair ligament and do apply some topical cream such as volini or relispray etc... give some rest to your knee proceed with strengthening exercise for quadriceps muscle group. And post that icing again
Health Tips
Dont over exert yourself. Use proper footwear so as to reduce pressure on knee and do not apply heat / hotpack as that can elevate the can and swelling
