Greetings from Bavaria,
Context is important. Please provide enough for us to be able to deal effectively with your question.

the expression "in time"? Why can I not use "in time" in my sentence number 3 but in the one in blue you rephrased right below?
What about these sentences?
1) Because I prepared for my A-level test early/in time, I passed it.
2) As my severely injured friend arrived in hospial in time/early, he survived.
Which expression or word can I use here and why?
I am looking forward to your answer.
Greetings from Bavaria
