If you're not as fast as Satotzu then you're already dead anyway, and even if not you won't be able to find your way out unless you had a friend with a GPS like Hisoka did. However if you lack the speed to keep up, you'd have been left behind at the stairs part anyway (can't cheat there) since the door closes at the top, so you'd never get to the swamp.
Leorio is supposed to be representative of what a peak human being might look like in the world of HXH (everone else is clearly superhuman). He probably wouldn't have passed the exam without some help, but you can also bring more tools to try to even the odds.

For the boars, I think people are overestimating their weight. Leorio couldn't move the first gate at the Z mansion at all and that's 2 tons, but it was shown him having no problem carrying one of the boars back. I know it's not quite the same thing but if the boar is meant to be as heavy as the gate (2 ton) then nobody out of the main characters besides Killua could've carried it back at the time of the Hunter exam. It's probably pretty heavy but definitely moveable if you have some help, either via tools or work out a deal with other contestants.

Possible only if you know beforehand what the exam will consist of and bring your gun and your bicycle, but since contestants don't know, it's not possible.
i say yes as long as you are able to find out what tests lie ahead of you and you are allowed to bring whatever you want.
technology, like nen, knows no boundaries.
a good technician could build a machine that can even take him up the stairs or at least travel up the stairs without him having to carry it.
let's have this machine carry a jetpack up the stais for him, while he has to be a good athlete to take the stairs (which is possible).
we already spoke about the possibilities of gps.
He jetpaks in the air and follows the gps signal.
The test with the pigs is possible to solve if you have a weapon or even poison (he could lure the pigs towards poisoned food).
the majority test is possible for anyone to solve, even if it might be hard.
Same goes for all following tests
The Hunter's exam is recurring so assuming you survived the first one, it'd be pretty obvious what kind of tools you should bring to future exams.
First you'd want to bring firearms. If that is somehow illegal, bring tranquilizers and poisoned weapons.
You definitely want a GPS.
You'd also need some form of locomotion, like a bicycle or a scooter. Jet pack would definitely help too if the technology exists. If not, at least bring a parachute.
