Relax today, now you know what you’ve learned. You are exceptional guys, know the value in each of you.” A plea for silence, which extends to the oral examination, does not constitute an “opinion examination”. In fact, Valditara believes that “everything can be done in a very conversational and relaxed atmosphere.” Translated into practical terms, commissioners have the right to ask questions on matters within their competence, but at the same time are called upon to demonstrate “maturity and acquired awareness” in the interview.
