    Although past tense and past perfect are often optional, I would definitely have opted in this case for If you had come on time, you would have met..... It excludes the ambiguity that arises with If you came on time..... (But I haven't marked your answer down.) – Ronald Sole Dec 4 '18 at 19:00
  • @Ronald Sole. Thanks. I would prefer the past perfect tense too. – Ross Murray Dec 4 '18 at 21:17
  • If that's your preference, I suggest you amend your answer accordingly. Just use the edit option underneath it.. – Ronald Sole Dec 5 '18 at 0:38
