Nightmares about exams? - January 16th 2011, 06:29 PM

I've been having really weird / realistic nightmares about exams every night for the past week or so.. failing them, being unprepared, not knowing the answers, only completing half the exam.. it's to the point where I'm not getting much sleep because I keep having these nightmares and can't fall back asleep after.

Is there anything I can do about this or do I just have to wait and hope it passes after my exams are done in two weeks? And is this a normal stress-related thing that everyone has or am I just going crazy?

how could anyone ever tell you, you are anything less than beautiful?| PM Me

I'm fairly certain these are really normal dreams to have before an exam (: I think what you need to do is relax more. Make sure you're still getting plenty of excercise in between study and eat healthily, drink plenty of water, all the usual stuff, bla bla. If you find yourself consciously getting stressed about the exams try to calm yourself down. Plus, you still haev another two weeks to study, that's plenty of time. There's no way you're going to fail or not know anything.

Hey Sarah,

Don't worry -- this is a pretty normal reaction when confronted with the stress of those awful, atrocious things called exams!


You're studying. You still have two weeks. Like bitesize said, you'll do fine! Don't let the nightmares get you down -- or you might very well fail because of them! I have complete faith in you.

Good luck!

I totally had those during exam periods, especially about math. Woke up in a cold sweat constantly. They'll go away.
