Conjunction 'Although...yet' is used to express two contrary qualities or actions of the subject.

'Although/though' is always followed by 'yet'.

Although/Though +Subject +Verb/HV +Q1 +Yet +Subject +Verb/HVQ2
'Rich' and 'Miser' are two contrasting qualities of the person.

'Although' is always followed by 'yet'.

'But' cannot be used in place of 'yet'.

It is generally used to show two contrary qualities or actions of a subject (person).

The correct sentence should be: Although I tried my best yet I could not pass the exam.

    It's not necessary to use although and yet in the same sentence ..for example: Although I was injured, I played well.
    Here yet is replaced by a comma
