    Cool Use of "managed to"

    Are these sentences correct?

    I don't have enough time tomorrow. But anyhow I will manage to meet you in the evening.

    I would have managed to pass the exam if at least I had read the first lesson.

    He would manage to pass the exam if you helped him a little in his study.

    I will manage to pass the exam if you help me a little in mathematics.


    Thanks,

    Re: Use of "managed to"

    I would offset "anyhow" with commas in the first example.
