    devoted himself to his studies

    As the saying goes “Every cloud has a silver lining,”. Minjun devoted himself to his studies while trying to prepare to retake college entrance exam, and finally he was accepted to medical school.

    If I have made any errors, please correct them.

    I'm not sure how the saying fits here.

    Also, the punctuation after the word "lining" is a mess.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    How about "failure is the mother of success"?

    I am not a teacher or a native speaker.

    I would say:

    Munjin devoted himself to his studies while preparing to retake the college entrance exam ....
    Not a professional teacher
