    I am not a teacher.

    Suppose you need to be somewhere at 6:00 o'clock, you go there little bit earlier than 6:00 o'clock. That means you are "in time".

    If you go there right at 6:00 o'clock then you are on time. You are not late or early.

    Hope this helps you.

    ('On time' refers to a schedule of some kind, maybe just an arrangement - as in anamicabhatta's example.)

    'My train leaves at 6.00, but it's usually about 10 minutes late. I want to be in time, so I'm aiming to get to the station at 10-to. Let's hope the train leaves on time for once!'
