Spiritual Meaning Of Writing Exam In The Dream

A dream of writing examinations happens to be one of the dreams that piques the dreamer’s curiosity. If you found yourself sitting for exams in the dream, and on waking up you were baffled on what your dream could mean, you are at the right spot on the internet to learn the meaning of your dream. 

Writing exams in the dream happens to be one of the most common dreams that people see. For many, these dreams are recurring, while others see it just occasionally. 

Today, let's trust the Holy Spirit to unravel to us the spiritual meaning of writing exam in the dream. Sit tight as we go on this adventure of deciphering the meaning of writing exam in the dream.

I understand that seeing a dream of writing exam can be very disturbing—especially when such dreams come frequently and seem to not go away. 

A good number of people often wake up perplexed whenever they dream seeing themselves writing exam in their dream. This isn't strange, considering the fact that just a few people know what such dreams mean.

Exams dreams come in various forms. From the many requests I've received from different people, seeking the meaning of their dreams, I'll give examples of the dream of writing exams as follows:

  • Biblical meaning of writing exam in the dream
  • Writing maths exam in dream
  • Dream of writing exams and not prepared
  • Can't write in dreams
  • Cheating in exam dream meaning
  • Dream of writing exam and not finishing

The biblical dream interpretation of exam can either be a good or bad omen. An exam dream might come from God, and some other times, such dreams could as well come from the enemy (as a spiritual attack). 

It is imperative that the dreamer [first of all] is able to ascertain the source of their dream, so as to know the appropriate actions to take towards that dream.

1 Peter 4:12 ESV
Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. 

Writing exam in the dream means what? The simplest and shortest answer I can give concerning the meaning of writing exam in the dream is that, they always mean the dreamer is going through certain tests or trials in their waking life. What follows after seeing an exam dreams is often either promotion or demotion.


Writing Exams In The Dream Means What


Writing exam in the dream means what? Understand that, to students, such dreams may come even more often—and sometimes it might be difficult to discern which does not come as a result of thinking about their school activities.

But what about those who are not in school, yet they keep seeing themselves writing a test or exam in their dreams? We cannot say the same about them. 


It is normal for students to dream about taking a test or examination. Sometimes, these dreams come to students as a result of them being anxious about a forthcoming examination. Apart from a scenario like this one, the reason why people keep seeing such dreams goes way beyond being in school.

Dreams that have to do with sitting for examinations or tests should be paid careful attention to—especially when they seem to be recurring. Every recurring dream has an important message it's trying to communicate to the dreamer.

When a particular dream keeps on repeating itself, it means they are very important, they're not just an ordinary dream that should be overlooked. God could be communicating a very important message to the dreamer through such a dream.

Let us explore some major reasons why people dream about sitting for a test and exam:

1. When You Are Still Schooling In Waking Life


If you are a student in waking life, do not read too deep into examination dreams. If examinations are approaching, as a student, it is not strange to dream about being in the exams hall. 

It is very likely that such a dream would come from the student's imagination—due to the fact that they are thinking about their forthcoming examinations

In some other cases, God may have choosen to use this medium to show a Christian student what their performance will look like in their forthcoming examinations. The Spirit of God will sometimes also reveal to a Christian student the plot of the enemy against their academics and grades. 

2. If You Had Long Graduated From School


As earlier stated, seeing recurring dreams about sitting for examinations or tests can be a good or bad omen.

If one often dreams about writing exams in a former (lower) institution; let's say the primary, high school or tertiary institution where they had long graduated from, that is obviously spiritually degrading. The spirit of demotion, failure, setbacks and delay is at work against the dreamer.

If you saw a dream about sitting for exams in a higher institution, such dreams are often a good omen—but only on the basis that, it is not an institution you long graduated from. Such dreams are often pointers to the fact that you are truly making great progress in waking life. 

Most exams and test dreams are often pointers to one's level of progress in each season of their life towards their destiny.

Biblical Meaning Of Writing Exam In The Dream


What does it mean to write exam in the dream? From all that has been said so far, we can now connect the dots to better understand the biblical dream interpretation of exam as follows:

1. Exam And Test Dreams Can Precede Our Elevation


Job 23:10 NLT
But he knows where I am going. And when he tests me, I will come out as pure as gold

If you have God's calling upon your life and He's been taking you through the process of equipping for your ministry, you will likely occasionally find yourself sitting for exams or tests in your dream.

Job 33:14-15 KJV 
For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not. [15] In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed.   

When a Christian sees recurring dreams about taking tests or exams (not always in their former primary or secondary school), the meaning is often not far-fetched. Such dreams point to the tests, trainings and equipping that the Lord is taking them through in order to enable them walk in their divine purpose

1 Peter 4:12-13 KJV
Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: [13] But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy. 

We must understand that our God does not tempt anyone, but He tests us. God's tests are not meant to mar but make us. Before we gain new heights in Christ, we will always pass through successive tests from the hand of God.

Greater the assignment we carry, greater the trials that we will have to go through. This will sometimes manifest as dreams of writing exams. 

Also be informed that one's performance in exams dreams from God will often determine whether they are ready for their next level or not.

It is very common for genuine ministers of all Gospel to see exams and tests dreams. This is because God is taking them from glory to glory.

Seeing Exam Result In Dream


It is also possible that after someone must have gone through a test (likely in form of challenges, uncomfortable situations, etc) from the hand of God, during that same season, they may see a dream of their exam result.

The grade on the exam result will often be determined by how the dreamer handled the tests and trials the Lord allowed them go through in their waking life. 

If the dreamer saw that they had good grades in their exam results in the dream, this is a good thing! This means that the Christian was able to understand all they were passing through as a test from God. Not only did they do that, but they were also able to sail through it successfully and come out stronger.

On the other hand, if the performance on the exam result was poor, this portrays that the dreamer still has not learned what God wants them to learn—even after all they've been through.

Also be reminded that, God never skips a test. If we fail to pass a particular test, it will always come back in another way. So if you notice that you failed a test from God, always prepare to do better next time.

Dream Of Writing Exam And Not Finishing


If you saw yourself unable to answer the questions given in a test or exam dreamor couldn't finish writing before the set time, it shows one's lack of preparedness to embrace their divine process or trials from the hand of God.

Some Christians have not been taught that God will test them. This often leads to them failing many tests from God, because they were never expectant or ready for such.

In some of these dreams, the questions may appear as such that the dreamer has never been taught before, or the dreamer would recognize they are things they've been taught, but couldn't answer any of the questions. This shows that the dreamer is not treating their calling or divine purpose as seriously as they should.

Writing And Cancelling In Exam Dream


If you knew the questions in your test/exam dreams; you were answering them but made too many mistakes that needed correction, this speaks of lack of diligence towards one's purpose and calling in their waking life. 

We must seek wisdom from God and ensure we diligently carry out every task He assigns us to. Avoid negligence towards your goals, callings, ministry and purpose in life.

Dream Of Exam Malpractice


Some often find themselves cheating in exams in their dreams. The dream meaning of cheating in exams isn't far-fetched. 

Such dreams often show that the dreamer is not willing to go through all that God wants them to go through, in order to walk in His purpose for their lives. They are seeking an easy route or shortcut out of their trials. 

We must understand that God is no respecter of persons, and there are no shortcuts to a fulfilled destiny. We cannot jump classes in the school of the Holy Spirit. We cannot bribe God to take us from glory to glory. We must embrace the process. We must play by the rules. 

We know that examination malpractice can come with dire consequences. We must be willing to go through every stage that is required for our promotion. 

Facing No Difficulty Answering Questions In Exam Dream


If you saw dream where you can easily answer the questions in an exam, it is really a good omen. 

Such dreams mean that the dreamer is confronting their life challenges head-on; they have passed most of God's tests, and have overcome many trials. 

By so doing, they have gained a better knowledge of and experience with God. They are now in a better place to fulfil their destiny. 

Whenever you see such dreams, know that God is pleased with your spiritual progress, and with the way you are handling the challenges that come your way. 

You are doing really great in the school of the Holy Spirit! You have learned to overcome temptations you initially fell into. You have learned the lessons God wants you to learn from all that you're going through. What follows next will be promotion from God. 

Spiritual and physical promotion will follow suit and manifest in the dreamer's waking life. They should pray and affirm it. 

Recurring Exams Dreams In Lower School


There are people who repeatedly see very disturbing dreams of being back in class, often in a lower grade school where they long graduated from. 

In most of those dreams, there is teacher teaching in the class and giving class assessments and tests. Surprisingly, the dreamer could rarely answer those questions, they always have poor performance. 

The feeling that comes with such dreams are never godly. They're often full of fear, sadness and an eerie feeling. Sometimes, the teacher would punish or act mean towards the dreamer for failing their class assessment or tests. 

There are people (including Christians) who repeatedly see such dreams. These kind of dreams are always an attack from the enemy. They always reveal that the enemy is attacking to bring setbacks, demotion, retrogression and failure to the dreamer in waking life. 

If you're one of those who constantly see yourself in the primary or secondary school where you long graduated from, having a class assessment or tests but never passing, always getting punished by the teacher, you need to sit up and pray really hard!

Pray against the manipulations of the enemy. Pray against powers of darkness working tirelessly to see to it that you don't make progress in life. Such dreams are not from God. 

Prayer Against Writing Exam In The Dream

Final Thoughts On Writing Exam In The Dream


Beloved, I trust that this article on the spiritual meaning of writing exam in the dream spoke to you. I trust that by reading, you gained insight into the meaning of your dream.

Pray aggressively against every disturbing and degrading dream of seeing yourself in a former school, failing tests and assessments and getting punished for them. Such reflect the enemy's enslavement and manipulation against the dreamer’s destiny. 

It is important that we pay close attention to the exam dream we see—as most of them will point to how we are living our life, how God wants us to live, and the level we are in life.

Our trials are necessary for us to become all that Heaven destined us to be on earth, we must embrace them. 

God trains us before sending us out to fulfil destiny. Exam and test dreams may come frequently if we are still in the process of getting to where He wants us to be.
