Student or Learner
I read the sentence 'I congratulate you all for doing so well in your final examinations' from Martin Hewing's ADVANCED GRAMMAR IN USE (2004 edition) CD ROM.
Does 'congratulate sb for sth' sound as good as 'congratulate sb on sth'?
Might I ask native English teachers to help me with this question? Thank you very much in advance.

You will find both in use. Personally I would prefer congratulating someone on achieving/doing something, but would accept "for".
