"How much ever you prepare, it is your attitude in the exam hall that matters"
From a previous question concerning the same phrase, I realize "how ever much" could be used.But I am asking this because of 2 reasons. 1. It does seem to make a little sense, that is how much- doesn't it imply the level of preparation and ever- for whatever period of time you might have prepared. 2. I have seen the phrase being used in a lot of sites.
Is there any chance for the phrase to be used by a native speaker of English ?
If I use how ever much, would it mean the same thing ?
