    Either can be correct. What is the context?

    chiko, your previous threads show that you are capable of writing better English than this lazy effort, in terms of capitalisation and punctuation.

    Please edit your post to save us the trouble of doing so.

    Additionally, please note that a better title would have been Why didn't you submit your transcript?

    Extract from the Posting Guidelines:

    'Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.'

    "Why didn't ypu submit your transcript?" is a question and is correct with the proper capitalization and punctuation. "Why you have not submitted your transcript" is not a sentence and is not correct. "Why haven't you submitted your transcript?" is correct.
