    Preposition

    Help! What is the difference between "scheduled on" and "scheduled for"? Is it right to "scheduled on (a date)", while "scheduled for" (a day)?

    Thanks in advance for help!

    Re: Preposition

    Hello Anon,

    In British English:

    1. I've scheduled a meeting for Friday.
    2. I've scheduled a meeting on organic vegetables.
    3. The meeting was scheduled on Monday.

    #1 says when the meeting will take place.

    #2 says what will be discussed.

    #3 says when the meeting was arranged.

    It may be different in American English, though!

    Best wishes,

    MrP
