    can in reported

    The teacher said, ‘You can see your exam results on school’s website the day after tomorrow’.
    The teacher said that we would be able to see our exam results on school’s website in two days’ time.
    Is this also correct?:The teacher said that we could see our exam results on school’s website in two days’ time.

    'in two days' time' is fine.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer
