What is your name on your identity documents? Passport? National ID card?

Hi FurqanM

Thanks for the response. My passport carries first name : vijayasenthil
Surname : dhandapani (D)
Wow, that's quite the variety of names you have - and impressively different on each degree and your passport. Some ideas:
1) Correct your passport to your correct name. Possibly to your PG certificate (though the initials may be complicated)
2) If your PG certificate is a master's (and you are confident WES will accredit it as such), you can exclude your bachelor's altogether and simplify your life a bit
3) Get a same name affidavit for two or three names (you can look up how it's done in your particular jurisdiction)

As I see it, while your immediate issue is the ECA, you ideally want as much consistency as you can get to make the PR and future procedures simple. In your place, I would pick the "right name", then go about correcting ) officially explaining any deviations. On a personal note, I had a name mismatch between my high school diploma and my passport. Got my passport changed then, and subsequently made sure I used the same name for everything.

Good luck!

I agree with Aamool on this one. Just to add one thing, analyze and research which documents are easier to change the name. For example in Pakistan its difficult to change your name on educational documents as compared to your passport. Get as consistent with one name as possible and leave out the document that is giving you trouble.
