    Correct phrases?

    I got a new question:
    -80 percent of (the?)students passed the term.

    1-How do I make a question so that the asnwer would be just "80 percent".
    2-Does that sentence sound natural to you?or you say it in another way?
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    3-is it In the end or at the end?
    EDIT:4-Which one would you prefer to use?(If you don't use them commonly, what's the expression with te same meaning that would be natural and normal to use?)

    come what may---no matter what---whatever will be will be

    By expressions above I want to say something like: I don't care what might happen afterwards,it doesn't matter to me anymore.


    Many thanks in advance.

    2-Does that sentence sound natural to you?or you say it in another way?
    80 per cent of students [all students] / the students [students in an single college] passed the exam / completed the term.
