    The long form of "It's rather……"

    It's rather late in the day to start studying - your exams are next week.

    late in the day - definition in British English Dictionary & Thesaurus - Cambridge Dictionary Online
    Will you tell me the long form of "It's" in the aforementioned sentence?

    Hi,

    "It's" is the contracted form of "It is".
