Help Urgent help regarding name issue

Heloo friends i have an issue regarding name in rejected application
i submitted an application to ECFMG for applying to step 1 examination
the issue is :
.................................................. ....................
in the passport
name : ahmad
father name is : karim
surname is : ali
and in my medical diploma
is ahmad s/o karim ali
and in all my college documents
name is ahmad (only)
now when i filld my record in ECFMG i wrote :
surname : ali
rest of names : ahmad
so in the step 1 application they wrote the name : ahmad ali
((means the mixed the first name and surname))
today they sent me an email that they reject the application b\o unmattched name between ECFMG record and the diploma
.................................................. .........
i contacted them and they said we need a letter from your medical school that ahmad is same of ahmad ali
but i read a couple of posts here that it will still make a problem in the future and as the name in passport will be different from the exam permit
so do you people advise to change the ecfmg record's name or going ahead with school letter
any help is appreciated , thanks in regards
