To dream of taking an exam represents a very challenging situation in your life that may require your complete focus or dedication. A challenge that may foster powerful uncertainties, require a lot of preparation, or put a lot at stake. An exam dream may stand as a barometer of pressure you’re feeling.
To dream of failing an examination may reflect an inability to prove yourself, overcome a challenge, or a sense of personal failure. Feeling that you didn’t perform adequately or live up to expectations. It may also reflect your worst fear coming true.
To dream of being unprepared for an exam may reflect your feeling of lacking of preparation or that you didn’t listen to a warning. Feeling accountable for the failure of a project or plan. You may be expecting too much of yourself.
