    Re: Good luck on your exams!

    I would use either "Good luck with your exams" or "Good luck in your exams".
    "On" fits better after "Congratulations" - "Congratulations on passing your exams". This, of course, could be said only after the exams have taken place and the results are known.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Is that meant to be a question, a statement of authority, an opinion, or a guess? Or something else?
