Quick question about full names on university applications.
So my parents (bless 'em) gave me three names: Name1 Name2 Name3 + my surname - which are in that order on my legal documents. However my third name (Name3) is the name that I am called by by my mum/dad and everyone else.
When I signed up for my undergraduate degree I registered all three names and as you can imagine there was some confusion with my name - when I put just the name I'm called (Name3) on my assignments, or when tutors tried to find me on a register, etc. because often times on the class register and email the system would just put the first name and surname (Name1 + my surname).
So I am registering for postgraduate study now and I want to get opinions/experience on whether or not to put all of my names on the registry which would match the names on my degree certificate for my undergraduate degree or put the name I'm called (Name3) and my surname.
Would it be bad if my undergrad/postgrad certificate names didn't match?
Just to clarify, it would be:
Undergrad certificate - Name1 Name2 Name3 + my surname
Postgrad certificate - Name3 + my surname
Thanks for your help in advance!
When can you expect yours?
