Student or Learner
The other day I was having a conversation with a native speaker(of English) over Facebook. In the end, I told him my exams are going on and that I have 4 more remaining. While wishing me luck he said this: "all the best for your coming papers".
Why would someone say "papers" here?
I am not a native speaker of English.
I am not a teacher.

It's fine in BE.
Justlearning, it's important to use correct spacing around punctuation.
- Put a space before an opening quotation mark or an opening bracket.
- Do not put a space after an opening quotation mark or an opening bracket.
- Do not put a space before a closing quotation mark or a closing bracket.
- Put a space after a closing quotation mark or a closing bracket.
However, if you are putting a quote inside brackets, then you put a space before the opening bracket but then write the opening quotation mark straight away. Here are some examples.
I like (fried) apples.
What is the reason for using "me" instead of "myself"?
All the best for the coming exams ("exams" instead of "tests"?)
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
