... But in my friend's case whether the process get approved or not because he got his degree certificate in the month of october 2008 even though he is having 3 years of experience.
The degree certificate has the date of completion of the course,which matters.
The degree certificate would have the date(year)of 2006 indicating that your friend completed the course in 2006. So, it won't matter if your friend got the degree certificate in 2006 or 2008 as long as it shows the year of completion of course.
Thanks and regards,
