Hi,
“The examination was very difficult, consequently, very few were able to pass.”
Would I use “consequently” correctly? Could it be “as a result”? or both?
Thanks.

    Could I use "as a result" in that sentence? Does it need changing something?
    Thanks.

    Because this is really two sentences joined without a conjunction, you need a semicolon: The examination was very difficult; consequently, very few were able to pass.

    The original sentence as written needs an "and".

    -- “The examination was very difficult, and consequently, very few were able to pass.”

    kentix, I am sorry. Perhaps I had to make another thread.
    My question concerns the last post.
