1. Do you say, " Good luck (in or on or for??) your exams" ?

2. I am glad to hear that you were really sorry for what you have done.
( Any grammatical mistakes in the above sentence?)

Please advise, teachers! Lots and lots of thanks.

You can say 'good luck in\with\for your exam'.

With 2, you can say for or about. ;-)

In American English, "on" or "with" would be most common. :wink:
