A sudden change in rule or set of rules without any basis is tantamount to an open cheating when an agenda of greater proportion as to its effect and future outcome is put in jeopardy. Does eliminating a certain portion of a whole will make the selection credible enough to justify the means? Any rules of engagement or pre-requisites compliance must come into full throttle to determine the level of difference once it involves the clear chronology of qualifications versus the required compliance.
We start our life in a certificate and ended it with the same, it does make sense to qualify it… all throughout the process. – Paquito
