The certificate of research cannot be signed this way in the electronic copy, but make sure you do sign them in the two hard copies. By uploading your thesis you take full responsibility for the content of the electronic copy
    4. it must contain the entire thesis including title page, certificate of research containing your declaration on the originality of the thesis, appendix/-ces (if available), and illustrations (if available) (format permitting). Front cover may be omitted
    5. it must be identical with the printed version (hard copy) of your thesis
    6. have your Neptun code at the ready
    7. use the following link to submit your thesis (you will need yor neptun code; when giving the title (and subtitle) of your thesis please use capitals only where necessary (names, titles, etc.))

It is the duty of the referee to compare the two copies (hard bound and electronic version). Only those theses can be defended that have been uploaded before the deadline and whose copies have proved identical and uploaded as described above. If the soft-copy and the hard-copy are not identical, you will have to resubmit the soft-copy in the next semester at the earliest. This means that your final examination will also be postponed.
