I want to specify a condition which is "make homework on time. don't postpone".

Can I use "make on" to describe this situation?

I'm open to suggestions.

  • No, you cannot. You don't use make this way. You'd use another verb like complete, finish, submit, depending on what your purpose was. – FeliniusRex May 14 at 20:34

No, that is not grammatical.

The usual form is "You should submit your homework on time." or "You should turn in your homework on time."

Even if it were proper grammar, at least to me, 'making' homework speaks only to completing it but says nothing about actually giving it to the instructor.

    Or simply 'Do your homework'. – Kate Bunting May 14 at 18:38
  • Again, "Do your homework", at least to me, speaks only of completing the work not giving it to the instructor. The latter is the real point to the time limit (you of course have to complete it before handing it over but completing the work is only part of the task). – SoronelHaetir May 14 at 18:44

    I assumed the OP to mean "Do your homework now, don't put it off." – Kate Bunting May 14 at 18:46
