Detailed dream interpretation…

Seeing yourself being submitted to a test in your dream means that some occurrence in your real life is troubling you. You are not very sure that you will be able to tackle the situation or not. This sense of uncertainty can cause you to have a dream where you find yourself being tested for some situation in your real life.

If you see in the dream that you have failed in the test which you had undergone, then it means that a sense of inability to handle some situation in real life has made you resigned to your fate and the failure in real life has come out as a failure in the test in your dream.

Again a fear of failure to maintain some relationship with another person in real life can cause dejection in you. This depression and sadness due to failure in a real life scenario may be the cause of a dream where you see yourself failing miserably in a test.

In the dream you may see that you have not been able to take the test as you have arrived late or some such reason which does not allow you to take the test. The symbolism of this dream means that you are worried that you may not be able to complete some job you had started in your real life.

If you find yourself cheating in the test then it symbolizes that you have not been honest with others and yourself regarding some work or some words in your real life. The sense of being unfair prompts you to have this dream where you cheat not only yourself but also others.

Feeling irritated with someone or something in a real life environment on being called upon to answer against your wishes about some act may make you dream also. In the dream you may see that you are being forced to sit in a test which you would like to avoid but you are not successful in doing so. This is caused by the irritation you had in your subconscious mind which surfaces in your dream.

Success begets success is shown in a dream where you visualize yourself to succeed in the test. This gives you the confidence that you feel you would have in a real life situation.

When you have a dream where you pass the test with flying colors, the symbolism of the dream signifies that whatever may come, you feel elated on knowing that you are prepared to take on the job assigned to you in real life. 

Feelings that you may have encountered during a test dream  may be...

Uncertainty, failure, inability, fear, depression, sadness, dejection, dishonesty, irritation, confidence and elation.
