    on

    Would you use "on" or "in" in this sentence?

    We spent a semester there, attended various English classes and took exams on/in those classes.

    "On" sounds better to me, but I think both might be correct.

    Thanks.

    Re: on

    Prepositions do change depending on where you live.

    In the US, you'd say you have an exam ON a subject, but IN a class.

    I have a test in my history class. It will be on the Industrial Revolution.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
