Unhappy Additional suffix to my name?

I m an IMG.....guys m in a big trouble...as my exam in next two weeks...had prometric practice exam...but the problem is that my name is having additional suffix which is not there in my passport or other ids..though prometric required a lot of documentation to prove ma id.. n finally allowed me to take the exam!!!!!!.but they say that i must get it corrected to take ma real exam which is supposed to be in next two weeks...though schedule permit clearly says that absence of suffix is acceptable.....but no-one listened to me...i m sending the request to ECFMG to change my name...but what if they take longer than 2 weeks
any advise please

I suggest you change your name in the ECFMG records to avoid problems in the future, even if that means you postpone your exam a little bit.

Get rid of this issue forever by correcting your name.
