Q2: He was very persistent. He finally got his way.

Due

AnsA: Due to the fact that his is very persistent, he finally got his way.

AnsB: Due to his persistence, he finally got his way.

Q1: The girls still went camping although it was a week before the examinations.

Despite

Ans A: Despite the fact that it was a week before the examinations, the girls still went camping.

Ans B: Depite it was a week before the examinations, the girls still went camping.

I think Ans A is correct... After "despite" you need a noun phrase or a noun.


Q2: He was very persistent. He finally got his way.

Due

AnsA: Due to the fact that he was very persistent, he finally got his way.

AnsB: Due to his persistence, he finally got his way.

I think both are acceptable. Please do notice that it is "... fact that HE WAS..." (compare to what you originally had).

cheerio! Hope this helps.
