    Hi, guys. I got my Igcse certificate today, theres an error in my name. Its supposed to be DANIEL EARL DA COSTA, but on my certificate its " DANIEL EARL DACOSTA".
    Is this a problem? Is it worth worrying about?

    It's not a huge problem, but I would say it's definitely worth getting it fixed. Contact your school / exams officer and see why that could've occured. It might just be the exam board made a mistake, in which case you could inform them and they should fix it for you and send a new one for you. It could be that your school has your name wrong on their own file, and then passed on that wrong name to all of the exam boards.
“Yanny” or “Laurel”
