Imagine the following piece of conversation:

-- You had not been prepared to the exam.

-- Inspite of that fact I've passed it excellent.

Does it make sense? I'm not sure about the last sentence, the expression Inspite of .... Is it common in such situations? I suspect that there is a more common phrase.


Accusation: "You were not prepared for the exam"

Response: "In spite of that fact, I passed with excellent scores."

Notes: "in spite" is two words. One is prepared for an exam, not to an exam.

It is a common expression, and it does make sense (as adjusted). Another way to respond would be I passed with excellent scores anyway.
