    Default By + some time in the future - possible tenses used

    Hello,
    I know that future perfect is often used in sentences like By the end of this year I will have finished the project.
    My question is if other tenses can be used there, too. E. g. would the sentence By the end of this school year, we´re going to finish the coursebook
    be correct?

    Thank you in advance :)
