ACS ACS Skill level met confusion. Need Guidance

Hello All,
I am planning to apply for Sub 189/190 and now in the process to file for my ACS under ICT Security Specialist.
I have completed my majors in Computer Systems Security from the UK in 2010. After that, I got a job in March 2012 in India in the cybersecurity field.
Till date I have 8+yrs of experience so was thinking that I will get 15 points.
But in ACS under Skill Level Requirement met date I am confused.
Will ACS deduct another 2 years from March 2012 till March 2014 in my application??
So this will make my total experience to 6+ yrs. Am I right?
Please guide!
Also, do I need to submit anything for the gap which I had after completing my post-graduation and actually started working?

If you have a pre-qualification experience that is relevant, you can use it to deduct for skill-met purpose. This way you can save your post-qualification experience and claim full points. If you don't have, then yes your first relevant 2 years of experience will be deducted. This is all true only if your education is ICT major and highly relevant to your nominated occupation

mohsinciddiki : Thank you for the response.​

Unfortunately, I do not have pre-qualification experience in cybersecurity. My bachelor's degree is however in Computer Science which covers a few subjects of security and few coding related. Will that help?
If it comes under ICT major, then you can claim post qualification experience and only 2 years from your exp will be deducted

Timeline missing
Hi,
I got email from ACS to provide more documents which I uploaded on the portal.
Yesterday after uploading the documents and after submitting them my profile was showing as submitted.
Today when i check again, I see my profile at previous status asking me to upload the documents again.
I didn't received another email from case officer and the requested documents are already uploaded.
Do I need to re-upload the same document under different experience setion?
I was asked to provide Form 26AS to support my payment evidence which I combined for all 3 employers and uploaded it as one file.
Not sure If I have to upload it for every employer?
I only have one last chance to upload the file. As we get only 8 upload options I guess?
Please assist!

If you have already uploaded all the required documents, you can send an email to your assessor and ask him to update the system
