Although and verb tense

Postby iltonsouza » Thu Jan 30, 2014 5:11 pm

Hi, everyone!
I'm from Brazil and I have a doubt. Could you tell me which one of the sentences below are correct. Take a look!

1. Although I didn't study for the test, I got a good grade.
2. Although I hadn't studied for the test, I got a good grade.

So, is it a case of using past/past or past perfect/past tense in the clauses? Could both cases be correct?
Thanks!

In context, either is fine.
