  Must Do Checklist Before You Submit Your Thesis or Dissertation 1. Proof Reading Proof Read your thesis at least one day before submitting it to the binding company. We know it's a pain, however spelling and grammar errors will lose you valuable marks. If you have a willing participant (or victim...!) who will actually proof read your thesis it and not just tell you how wonderful it is, e.g., a classmate or relative, this would be a great help. Alternatively, it is down to you, so... don’t leave it until late in the evening when you are tired. You are more likely to miss something important.
