    Default move up

    "You might want to move up your time table."

    Doest it mean to rearrange the schedule for earlier time?

    "Move back" would mean rearrange something for later time?

    B: "Alright. I will push back the timetable then."

    You need something to move up your timetable, unless of course it is you who is going to physically move up the timetable. Not very likely.

    You can move something without "physically" moving it. If you are the person that determines an entire work timetable, then you can choose to "move it up" or schedule your tasks earlier for an earlier completion date. You are the one moving it up, without actually physically moving anything.

    "You might want to it move up your time table" is also grammatically incorrect.

    If possible, could you please comment on my post "postpone the date of an exam"?

    Yes it is. I meant to write "move it".
