I would like help re-writing this sentence. I would like the overall tone of the language kept intact, and I would like it to be as concise, eloquent and well written as possible.

In the event you feel like that this study is not a match for your qualification, ...

I have come up with two versions:

Version 1

In the event you feel that this study is not a match for your qualification, ...

Version 2

In the event you feel this study is not a match for your qualification, ...

Does either of these have an advantage over the other? Is there another, better way to write it and meet the goals I've given?

If your qualifications don't match this study,...

If this study does not match your qualifications,...

But wait, how could a study truly match someone's qualifications?
