When you upload your final version of the MT text to your student's personal account on June 1, your supervisor receives it and marks it as final.
Your work is automatically checked for anti-plagiarism. At the same time, you must confirm that you wrote the work yourself. Your supervisor is writing an anti-plagiarism test report. A text with less than 70% originality is plagiarism. A student whose work is recognized as plagiarism is expelled.
Carefully follow all the rules of text formatting. If you do not pass the norm-control, then the MT loading procedure begins again
The text of the dissertation and the appendices must be downloaded separately. It is also not allowed to merge words and use special programs to replace letters. If the auditor notices that the student tried to illegally increase the percentage of originality of MT text, then his work is recognized as a falsification. A student whose work is recognized as a falsification is expelled.
At least three days before the defense, you must get access. You get access to protection when you have successfully completed all the previous stages and uploaded all mandatory and additional files to your personal account.
