Can I use し and のに in one sentence?

I always see し used with から, but I've never seen it used with のに...

For example, is this sentence right?
勉強しなかったし、試験は難しかったのに、合格しました。
If it's not, then how can I say that in a natural way?

ありがとうございます。

    Yes, we say so. We also say 勉強しなかったし試験は難しかったけど(or けれど/ けれども)合格した。
    This のに and けど mean "though/ although".

    If you use から in this sentence, it's going to be 勉強しなかったし試験は難しかったから合格できなかった。
