    Is this right sentence? (by vs. until)

    Hi,

    Is this right sentence?

    "You have to finish your homework until I get back. "

    I would liketo know the use of "until" is right in this sentence.

    Thank you.

    No.

    You must finish your homework before I get back
    You have to finish your homework by the time I get back.
