    Question Change into passive

    Hiya!

    A friend of mine asked me to change these sentences into passive, and these are my answers. Would you check them if possible?

    1- If you have studied hard, you would have passed the exam.
    The exam would have been passed if you have studied hard.

    2- Will you get to school tomorrow?
    We can change it but that sounds awkward, I think.

    3- Will you go to school tomorrow?
    It cannot be changed because (go) is transitive.


    Thanks in advance

    "if you had studied hard" Although its grammatically correct I can't imagine a native speaker saying it like this in the passive form.

    2- Will you get to school tomorrow?

    You cant.

    3- Will you go to school tomorrow?
    It cannot be changed because (go) is transitive.
    You cant

    Thanks in advance
    I wouldnt suggest using the passive in any of those examples.
