On Time or In Time?

www.timeanddate.com

Prepositions are always difficult. Here is the example:

The new student usually comes to class on time. or
The new student usually comes to class in time.


Which is right? Both are correct.

Take a look at these:
To be on time: to arrive at the correct time and not be late 
Examples:
The buses here are never on time. They're always late. 
We're leaving at 10.00 sharp. So be sure you're on time. 


To be in time (for something): to arrive early enough (for something)
Examples:
I never use an alarm clock but I always wake up in time for the 4 o'clock 
news on the radio.
Sorry mom, I won't be home in time for dinner, I have to work late at the office.
