I'd like to know which form is more accurate:
(1) He is clever. He will pass the exam.
(2) He is clever. He is going to pass the exam.
According to what I read in Swan's PEU, I think WILL is more accurate.
He says: " We prefer will for predictions when there isn't such outside evidence- when we are talking more about what is inside our heads: what we know, or believe, or have calculated."
