    Editing a phrase

    the defence date shouldn't exceed the 8th week after the submission date .

    I feel it is a weak phrase with many mistakes.Any hint?

    As a sentence it is grammatically all right, but it makes no sense. Can you give context?

    The deadline for submission is eight weeks from now.
    You can improve the 2nd part of the sentence.
