I am strongly considering changing my first name to its anglicised version before enrolling at university. As my name on my GCSE and A-Level certificates cannot be changed, will this cause me any issue when I will apply for employment? I am an Italian Citizen and therefore I will have the original documentation in Italian (I can translate it and make a certified copy if required), would this cause any issue? Thanks a lot!

Few employers will actually ask to see your certificates from GCSE and A Level.

However, as long as you have legal evidence of your name change, I can't imagine it would be an issue.
