Unhappy Different sequence of names on scheduling permit and passport

Hi everyone!

Since I am an asian and we usually put our surname in front of the given name. My full name as shown on the passport is "Lee Kian Beng" (Family name: Lee, Given name: Kian Beng)

After I registered with ECFMG, my name is shown as Kian Beng Lee on Oasis. (Given name followed by family name)

May I know what should I do now? I have learned that we would not be allowed to take the exam if the name on scheduling permit is not matching the one on the passport exactly.

I have submitted my form 186 and now waiting for the verification by ECFMG. I figured the name on my scheduling permit will be in the same order as the one on ECFMG record. So will I face any problem when I show my passport to the proctor at prometric center on the exam day?

Please help me with this!! I have emailed ECFMG almost a week ago but have not received any reply from them.

Thanks in advance.
