Dreams about taking a school test or certification exam occur pretty often. I don't know whether there is any hidden meaning or interpretation about these dreams, but I have never taken them seriously. Most of my dreams revolve around me feeling anxious, unprepared or figuring out how I will ever pass the test. A few days before my university admission test I had a nerve-racking dream. In my dream I was sitting at my desk in school while my teacher was handing out papers to each student. When she came to me, and handed out the question paper, I discovered that I forgot about the test. As I woke up, with a sigh of relief, I realized that it was just a dream. But a few days ago, when I went to sit for the exam, in real, I found out that I forgot my pen kit back home. Without any further delay, I let the teacher who was on duty, know about my situation and apologised. She was kind enough to find me a pen immediately. That was the moment I thought about the dream that I had the other night. I don't know whether I should translate my dreams or not, one thing that I have learnt is that I need to work on my organisational skills.
