    My name is being changed and I have found a website on the AQA page where it tells you about how you can change your name.

    However, for my GCSE's I did a range of exam board such as OCR, EDEXCEL, WJEC.

    Do I have to apply to all of these individual board for certficate sheet with my new name on it or can I just go on the AQA website and change things there

    If you already have your certificates and are going to change your name, then don't change the name on them. Instead, keep them as it is, and if you are ever required to show them to anyone, just make sure that you have your deed poll to show.
    If you changed your name before you got awarded them, then you got awarded them in the wrong name, in which case (and don't take my word for this - this is just what I would do) talk to your school and do it via them. If you can't do this for whatever reason, then I would phone all the individual exam boards to see if they are able to do anything about it.
