    Question The opposite of 'bring Sth forward' please...

    Hi all,
    Firstly, may I know if the sentence 'to bring an exam forward' is still in common usage?

    What is the opposite of this? (Something like 'put it off' perhaps?)




    Thanks a lot!

    Thanks a lot!
    You could say "put it back" or "postpone it".
