    Although he studied hard, yet he failed his exams

    Although he studied hard, yet he failed his exams.

    Is 'yet' optional? Thanks.

    I am not a teacher.

    No, it's just wrong.

    Either, "Although he studied hard he failed in his exams."
    or, "He studied hard, yet he failed in his exams."

    No — it's wrong.

    Use either 'although' or 'yet' — not both.
