Hi Guys,

I don't have a last name and hence, I'm not able to register for GMAT.
Please suggest.

Thanks,

Dear sannidhya,

I'm happy to respond. :-) My friend, you have a unique situation. I suggest that you contact GMAC directly: get their guidance, so you do exactly what they will consider legitimate. You might try to contact them directly at the email GMATCandidateServicesAmericas@pearson.com or at customercare@mba.com. I will also make some inquiries and see what I can find out.

I wish you the best of good fortune, my friend!

Mike :-)

Dear sannidhya,

I heard back from the folks at GMAC. They said the following:
Thank you for your inquiry. Your name should be entered exactly as it is written on your passport.

You should not experience any problems, as long as the personal data you enter, first (given) and last (family) names are in the proper order, date of birth, and country of citizenship, exactly match what appears on the identification (unexpired with signature) you will present at the test center.

When creating a profile on http://www.mba.com, if your passport book does not include your surname (family name), please enter a period/dot in that field.

Please see below for an example:

Either:
First name: Tonya
Middle: Michelle or leave blank if you do not have a middle name
Last (surname) name: .

Or:
Last (surname) name: .
First name: Tonya
Middle name: Michelle or leave blank if you do not have a middle name


My friend, I hope this addresses the issue for you. Best of luck!

Mike :-)

One of my acquaintance was in a similar situation. He repeated his first name as his last name. His name is "Foo Foo". That has eventually became his official name everywhere.
