Why is it not reussir à un examen?

I just put réussir à un examen in one of your tests and you marked the "à" as wrong although I was always taught this was correct.  I have checked in both Collins dictionary and in the Harraps dictionary and they both say réussir à un examen.  Please could you explain this?

Probably the lesson was about passer un examen versus avoir un examen. So you were expected to use one or the other.
