    Question need ur bit help

    Hello,

    I feel confused between in, at and on, when do we use them with dates?
    For example;

    I will have an exam in 1/3/2007 ..
    and the deadline of the project will be at that date..
    Is it correct?

    I want to know when do we use in , at , on with the dates ..

    another question , when do we use (will be having) instead of will?

    thank you in advance..

    BTW i have posted this question in the general forum, I despaired because no one has replied on me, maybe i put it in the wrong forum

    Default Re: need ur bit help

    I think you must use on with dates as a rule
    - The exam will be on 3rd March or
    - The exam will be on that date.

    There's a simple and clear explanation of prepositions of time on this webpage:

    Prepositions of Time, Place, and to Introduce Objects

    I hope you find it useful

    The form "will be having" is a future continuous, so you are supposed to use it to describe something that will be happening at a certain time in the future.
    Ex: This time next week, I'll be flying to Paris.
    Don't phone me at 9. I'll be having a bath.

    Does that help?
