    Could you correct it?

    Hello, teachers:
    The hypothetical circumstance is a schedule says people need to finish their work on June twenty-first, for example, and they wrap it up on June 19th.
    Is it right and idiomatic if I say:
    They complete their work earlier than the schedule.
    I am not very sure if my try is right or not.
    May I have your verification?
    Thanks a lot!

    They complete their works before schedule.

    Change "before schedule" into "ahead of schedule".
