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"

Re: Adverb

Welcome to the forum.

Where do I have to put the adverb successfully in this sentence? And also, if there are any other mistakes, correct them, please. (Don't use a home-made emoticon to replace a standard punctuation mark.)

"The pursuit of excellence, motivation, and analytical thinking​, combined with [STRIKE]the[/STRIKE] 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'.
