Raise your hand if you have this dream

I started sweating as I read this one.

Yes. This is my constant re-occuring bad dream.

My variation is that I'm taking a final exam in a college class that I've never been to once during the semester and did not study for. Actually, that's not too far from reality for a least one college course I took.

After 4 years they have gotten a lot less frequent. This happens to everyone I have talked to as well.

Mine usually involves a lab I have no idea of what's going on or falling seriously back in the assignments.

Same here. I've had the dream, but don't think I've had it in years now as I've been out of school for a while (6 years for grad, 12 for undergrad).

I've been out of school for almost 4 years, but I still seem to have it about once a month.

The usual version of mine is in a class I never took, in a building I never actually had a class in, but it still feels real. A lot of times I'm blowing off a class, especially one I don't care about but is required, to focus on other classes. Those are the worst, because I essentially did do that with linear algebra (although it was an elective).

Sometimes I'm actually taking a college class, but back at my high school.

I've had a dream where I'm at work with my co-workers, only the place we were working in was the elementary school where I had attended back in the 70's.

This happens to me, in reality, on a semi-regular basis. If I start dreaming about it when I graduate, I will not be happy.

Not that one...mine is: I'm sitting at a breakfast bar sipping a cup of coffee when some young lady I don't recognise comes and sits next to me. She orders a drink and then turns to me and says "I'm late"....scares me every time.

I got my bachelor's degree in 1963, and my master's in 1972...and I still have that dream about finals coming up for a class I never attended. Sometimes, I dream that I could somehow manage to pass the exam, if only I could remember the classroom where it was being held...

Never have had that happen, probably because I never got stressed out over school.

I haven't had that dream in a while, but I've been out of college for a long time.

My version was generally that I forgot which classes were on which days, and I couldn't remember where the classrooms were located.

I had this dream once at the beginning of a final...in 1971. I went blank and sweated for 20 minutes. Then I chilled out of it and passed in flying colors.

My variation of this dream is knowing that I'm supposed to be in class, but not knowing what the class is or which room it's in.

I really hate being lost.

Mine are a lot less frequent now. They're a variation where I learn about 3/4 of the way through the semester that I have a class I only vaguely remember having been enrolled in, and haven't been going to.

Maybe there's a statute of limitations, and I'm near the end of it.

I also just remembered this scene used in a somewhat obscure, but hilarious Val Kilmer spy comedy called Top Secret.

He goes through the usual...he's late, he can't get his locker open, he can't find the classroom, etc.

Then he wakes up and finds that it's only a dream and this whole time he's been being tortured in an East German secret police cell, and his tormentors are awakening him after he passed out, to which he mutters, "Thank goodness, it was just a dream."
