    Congratulation VS Congratulations

    When we want to say someone get a better result from the exam, how can we use the correct word?

    Tom got a better result from the exam, his English exam got A+.
    Then, his friends,
    Mary said that "Congratulation!" or "Congratulations!"

    Which one is correct to use?

    It's congratulations. There's a typo in the thread title.

    It was wrong in the original post. I changed it but forgot to mention it.

    How did you change it, Matthew? I thought only moderators could do that.

    Re:Oh dear, title glitch!

    Yup. It can be changed at will as you can see from this post. Heading to Mods Chat to see if we can get this sorted!

    Re: So can I

    I've alerted the admins but it's the weekend and it could be that it's another glitch from the last update.
