Eli5: Why we see nightmare about failing exam even after fully graduated years ago?

Not everyone does. You’re likely experiencing something in your life that you equate to similar anxiety you faced when taking exams and therefore dream about taking an exam.

i would like to add dreaming about missing class and/or not being able to find your classroom, locker, necessary books for said class, etc. since i feel like it would have a similar answer

This is what we call a “stress dream”. They tend to happen during periods when we are feeling an increase of stress from real life. And, because we all have similar experiences, most of our stress dreams tend to be the same set of scenarios.
