    As the title says, I need help with how to get my name changed on my Final A-level certificate. I gave my EDEXCEL A-level exams last year in June as a Private Candidate and for that session I registered myself with my National Identity Card name which is different from my Passport name. I got my National Identity Card name changed to match my Passport name now. Problem is the name that got written on my Certificate is my old incorrect name. I've contacted the local British council office and all they said to me was contact the board. I searched the Pearson website and couldn't find a section to get any changes on the certificates. Please help me on how to proceed in this case, who to contact and how to? I need this to be done quickly so I can apply for a local equivalence here in order to study in a University. I've all the documents needed to prove my correct birth name which was incorrect on my National Identity Card. Thanks!

    To describe the matter in detail, I was born in a foreign country(Saudi Arabia) and when I came back to my native land(Pakistan) somehow someone messed up my name when I went to get my National ID card made. I didn't even bothered until I got my certificate and I found out that I couldn't get a equivalence with a different name to that on my Passport/New ID card.

    You need to speak to the issuing exam boards about a change of name and they'll be able to look into this for you.
