Can I write "Consult teachers or seniors about how to write a formal essay or pass an exam." Thanks. I am not sure if "consult" is a right word. Thanks.

"consult someone about" and "consult someone on" are both OK in your context. "seniors" is used in the USA to indicate older people of retirement age. It doesn't have the general meaning of "more experienced people" which is perhaps what you were thinking of.

I want to consult my teachers or seniors ON how to write a formal essay or (how to ) pass an exam. > correct Consult is to meet and seek advice on something
