If you’re not taking exams in real life then this dream is a metaphor for some kind of difficulty you are facing at work. • This is a fear of failure dream and reflects where you feel you are going to be assessed or judged by others on your performance. • The dream reflects your lack of confidence in your abilities. It can also occur with other kinds of tests in life from auditions to interviews to driving tests. Where are you being tested in your life?
