If you dream about school, you may see an X on one of your tests.
This could mean that you are feeling judged or criticized by others. It could also mean that you have some regret over decisions you made in the past.

Sometimes the X is used to mark checkboxes and selections.
If this is the case in your dream, this likely means you are exploring your options and trying to make a decision about something.
X Marks the Spot
Often times in stories about pirates looking for treasure, you may see on a map “X Marks the Spot”.

X as a Roman Numeral
In Roman Numerals, the letter X is a symbol for the number 10.
