Hey

I was supposed to take my GMAT on Aug 11 but I was not allowed to because there was a small name mismatch. I had used "xxxx. T" where T is an initial and that is how my name is written in all my IDs except in my passport where it is just "xxxx" and expansion of 'T' is written separately under 'surname'. I got so disheartened to hear that I would not be writing the exam after preparing for months. Any advice on what to do from here, keeping in my mind the triviality of my issue here? :/

Hi SimpleSimon123 ,

I am seriously feeling very bad for you. :(

I would suggest call Pearson call center and request them 100 times to allow you to reschedule without any fee.

If they agree, well and good , else first try to get your name changed on your MBA.com profile with their help and then reschedule the exam asap by spending another 250 bucks. :'(

All the very best. Keep us posted so that this thing could help others in future.
