    The adverb 'successfully'.

    Where I have to put the adverb successfully in this sentence? And also if there are any other mistakes, correct them, please:))"The pursuit of excellence, motivation, analytical thinking combined with the creativity and a deep understanding of the history of architecture enable her to pass exams on theoretical disciplines successfully"

    "The pursuit of excellence, motivation, and analytical thinking​, combined with the creativity and a deep understanding of the history of architecture, enables her to pass exams on theoretical disciplines successfully."
    The word 'successfully' is redundant: passing her exams tells us she has been successful.

    The end of the sentence would be the right place to put an adverbial phrase such as 'with ease/with honours/with distinction'.
