Universal time is used around the world as wel as in the military. It is different from am/pm time, because it uses a 24-hour clock instead of a 12-hour clock twice. This prevents the mixups that often accompany am/pm time.
 
Universal time starts at 0001 (12:01 am) and ends at 2400 (Midnight). Time from 1:00 am to 12:59 is exactly the same, except a zero is added in front of 3-digit times, so that every time will have 4 digits. Time from 1:00 pm tp 12:00 am is the same as am/pm time with 12 hours added. Time from 12:01 am to 12:59 am is states as 00 hours but the minutes remain the same. **Remember, universal time only affects the hours not the minutes.
