    Smile check on/check/check up on

    I have to check on/check up on/check my schedule to see if I have to get up early tomorrow morning.
    When you fry fish, you need to check on/check up on/check each side to make sure it doesn't burn.
    After you finish your test, you'd better check on/check up on/check your answers carefully.




    Which fits in the above context best respectively? And why? Thanks.
