    It doesn't matter, they look at your candidate number. Half of my exams say Beccy and half say Rebecca and there's nothing wrong because they catalogue everything using your candidate number so put whatever you want

    oh well in that case put your legalised first name and surname - the one on your passport because that's what is registered in this country.

    Put the one that is on the timetable given to you a few weeks before your exams start. As others have said, it doesn't matter hugely because they'll just your candidate number/centre number to ascertain who you are because, chances are, there's somebody else doing that paper with the same name as you.
