I wonder how many times people abort projects because it looks like there is not enough time left.
I had a project downloaded yesterday which had a deadline date of 17 April which is 21 days away but the remaining time was showing as 32 days.
I let it run for a few hours and the remaining time dropped to 9 days, so it would complete in time

If it is PrimeGrid, also be aware that the deadline can be repeatedly extended while you are working on a task. The deadline you see inside BOINC may be the original, unextended deadline. On your task list here on the website (e.g. https://www.primegrid.com/results.php?userid=35795 for you when your ID is 35795), you see the variable deadline.

As an example, some subprojects start with a 21 days deadline, but when you start working on the task the deadline can be gradually extended, up to 84 days after you got the task. (Other subprojects have other numbers of days.)

Boinc is very bad in estimations, especially when you started new project for a first time, and nothing can be done - initial prognosis is based on benchmarks which are often too far from reality. Let the task run for a while, and Boinc will show much better estimate because it'll know true elapsed time and % done, and calculate more exact task duration from this data. Next, when you've completed some tasks (about 10), Boinc will gather enough information to calculate some correction coefficients and will give even better estimates.
