Which is more correct? "Work hard and you will pass" or "Work hard so you will pass"
 
Which conjunction "and" or "so" will be more appropriate to fill the blank in the sentence:  Work hard ....... will pass.

Of course so is more appropriate but I f I were you I would set the sentence like this one:
 
Work hard then you will pass.

Both are correct:

Work hard and you will pass... - means if you work hard, you will most assuredly pass the exam.

Word hard so you will pass... - means you need to study so that you can pass the exam... but if does not imply that you "will" pass like the first one does though.

"Work hard and you will pass"
it īs like telling the student, if you work hard = you will (100%) pass

whereas

"Work hard so you will pass"
it īs like telling the student, you need to work hard in order to pass


first one, sounds like a speech a teacher would give to the class..;)
