When do I place a comma before “so”?

ANSWER: When “so” begins a clause:

.e.g. “I studied hard, so I am sure to pass the test.”

The same punctuation rule is used with: FOR – AND – NOR – BUT – OR – YET

…or FANBOYS to help you remember.

e.g. “It is important, but not everyone agrees with the policy.”

      “There is a new rule in the workplace, yet no-one knows about it.”

If the sentence is quite short, this punctuation is often skipped.
