I have a very large document, whose main.tex file looks as follows:

\documentclass[
    bibliography=totoc, % Add the bibliography to the TOC
    listof=totoc,       % Add the "List of *" to the TOC

The abstract.tex file looks like this:

\chapter*{Abstract} %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

\pdfbookmark[0]{Abstract}{abstract}

...

The full abstract is required to fit on one page only. To this end, I would like to move the abstract title up as there is currently a lot of space between the beginning of the page and the beginning of the abstract rectangle:

Example of spacing of the abstract page

However, I would like to leave all other chapter headings unaffected. How would it be possible to achieve this? Thank you very much for your help.

Try this code. It will impact only the chapters included in the frontmatter but not the starred ones.
