You are not obligated to tell anyone about not matching in previous years. They may snoop around the issue in their line of questioning about what you did for the past year.
Besides, if they do ask the question, you now have the opportunity to turn it into a positive by telling them about how you improved your application, experience, etc. over the past year to make you a significantly better candidate.
