@Nastya,
If you have a choice, you should make it into two sentences.
"...of the test. Consequently,..."
I am not sure about the semicolon.

@Nastya,
Use a comma instead of a semicolon, include "and" before "consequently," and remove the comma.

Lora was late for beginning of the test, and consequently she failed to complete it on time.
