    No problem.

    I omit my middle name on all documents apart from passport/driving licence/UCAS applications.

    Your GCSE certificates will have your middle name on it though, even if you didn't put it on the front of the exam paper.

    Writing the wrong name would potentially be a big issue because technically it's not you/ fraudulent.
    Not including your middle name is totally fine. Actually I'd bet most people don't.
    With most documents it's only your first and last name that matter unless specifically stated otherwise, especially if you have other identifying information like your candidate number.

    You'll be fine. I did this several times for both my GCSEs and A-levels and wasn't penalised.

    It's the centre's choice whether to make entries by all names, first and last name with middle initials or just first and last name.

    I expect a lot of exams officers don't either. It's quite an obscure setting in the software and if you inherit it you'd just carry on with it.
