Correct spelling, explanation: the correct form is submitted because here we use consonant-vowel-consonant rule. It says that we double the last consonant in such situation if we add a suffix. Therefore t in submit is doubled and the outcome is submitted.
Submited is thus a misspelling.
Definition of submitted:
verb, past simple and past participle form of the verb submit, to give out something, usually for approval

Incorrect spelling, explanation: this form is incorrect, as we should double the last consonant in submit when adding the suffix (according to consonant-vowel-consonant ending). This way submitted is the correct form, and
submited is wrong.
