Default About Name Discrepancy

hi,
i am about register for ecfmg step 1 exam. the problem is that my name on my final MBBS certificate is" tasnim faruq" but my name on my passport is tasnim faruque
what name shall i write on my ecfmg registration application,cause it says that your name should exactly match the name on your passport and final MBBS degree
will that be a problem?
with what name shall i register ?

listen, this is a serious issue... i messed it up when i registered and it cost me a lot....
ideally all your names should match, i.e, one on
1.passport
2.m.b.b.s degree &
3.ecfmg records.
you should call ecfmg before registering because once you register, its not easy to change names.: eek:
and plz specify what is your name on the "degree"... because its the degree, that matters.
if the name on the "degree" is wrong, you should get it corrected, or you will need some documents to prove.
so best way is to call ecfmg first
hope that helps
