Whenever exams near (such as now), it's very common for students nationwide to get all sorts of dreams about their exams in their sleep.

Most common ones are about coming late to the exam or missing it entirely, which stems from anxiety of failing it.

What interesting exam dreams have you had?

I'll start:

I had a dream that on results day, my card was full of non-A level qualifications for random stupid crap like "speaking in class" and even "integrity of principles", and they were all awful grades, of like F, G, H, J and so on. I also only got into my insurance

I had a dream the other day that I got my results and I did badly. Woke up in a cold sweat and was panicking over it for ages.

Yeah, it really makes you realise how it might feel to fail doesn't it? You don't really imagine the scale of it until you experience it and the dream gives you a sneak peak experience.

They're common, but their frequency per person is fairly rare, I only got 1 or 2 last year. But I suppose it doesn't happen to everyone either.

I had a dream where the invigilator was Drake and he told us to stop what we're doing, tore our exam papers and started dancing to "Hotline Bling". He then sat down, put his feet on my table and we just talked about rabbits for some reason. The best thing was, I got an A* on that paper...

Had a dream where I forgot to answer all the A questions on my RE exam and listened to others talking about what they put down as their definitions

Yesterday, I had a dream on the Maths exam I did a week ago.

There was this 5 marker circle theorum question and my sister was nagging me to revise them but I couldn't be bothered. I had a dream that I got the wrong answer and in my dream I was trying out all the possible methods lol. I woke up, went to my desk and re-created what I did in the exam and then checked the unofficial mark scheme. Luckily i fricken got it right!

Had a dream where i was in the exam hall and i have a set of 20+ pens and NONE of them worked. Then as i was trying to squeeze out a bit of ink, my exam paper just???? started flying???? and no one did anything. They just sat there heads down while their papers turned into mini aeroplanes and took off. The desks were all being cluttered too, scattered in randomly in the hall.. and the hall wasn't even the one in my current school, it was in the school i attended 3 years ago... hm....

I have loads of nightmares during exam season. The last dream I remember I was so late to my exam I decided not to wear my uniform to the exam. I was so stressed about being disqualified for not wearing my uniform lmao

I dream (should I say have a nightmare) about exam results sometimes. I wake up in the morning actually believing that my dream actually happened and now need to look for alternatives. Fortunately, I still have time

LOL I can imagine your panic after waking up and while loading the mark scheme up

It's very rare that I ever get dreams related to anything in real life I'm going through. Exam dreams are something I've never experienced, unless you count the one where I ran out of a geography classroom where an exam may or may not have been taking place, ran off down the road, got caught by year 7s outside doing fieldwork, became best m8s with a year 7 girl, and then met shaved Cumbrian Dumbledore and swam in a poison lake...

That I forgot about my M2 exam. Now I have reminders everywhere :laugh: The irony is though, M2 happens on the same day as my birthday so I'd expect that to be the easiest to remember but I also forgot that so...

That I wrote my exam with invisible ink so that when it came to marking, there was nothing to mark and then the whole appeal process and witness statements from the invigilators saying I did actually write stuff down in the exam. :s:

I dunno I don't really dream about exams I try put it out of my mind. Don't get the best of sleeps though as even if I set my alarm I end up waking up to check my phone multiple times as I'm scared it won't go off haha. Just one left for me now on the 7th anyway then first year of uni done. Sticking around until 12th though as got summer social on 10 which looks mad then euros 11th although I liked watching it a pub at home usually where there's a proper atmosphere uni bars just don't have that edge #rant #spiel

I don't really dream about exams

But months ago I had a dream about results day, where instead of getting the As I want, I got Cs and Ds. Turns out, it was a premonition (probably).
