    unless [conjunction] = used for saying that if something doesn't happen, something else will happen as a result; if ... not:

    I won't go unless you tell me what's going on. = I won't go if you don't tell me what's going on.

    Here you are:

    You will be late for your bus unless you hurry. = if you don't hurry, you will not catch your bus as a result.

    The car should be parked in the drive, unless someone's moved it. = as far as I know the car was parked in the drive, so it still should be there providing that someone else has not moved it.

    Unless she works harder, she won't pass her final exams. = she will fail her final exams if she doesn't study harder.
