My stuck up school wouldn't believe that my full name was
just Beth and all my certificates turned up with 'Elizabeth' on them.

Posted:Okay...that is really funny. ubblol

Higher education my bum!

And yeah, my real name is mis-spelled all the time. But in truth, my first name is an uncommon spelling and my last is just damn hard.

Posted:My first name can be terminated with y, ie, e or i. I can generally tell who'se writing by the spelling they use.

Did your department not send you a letter beforehand saying "this is exactly what we're putting on your diploma, is it all right?". If it's anything like the place I slaved in for 4 years the diploma is automatically generated from the university database so it should have been the same as what they've been calling you for 4 years.


There is a slight possibility that I am not actually right all of the time.

etc... don't even get me started on my last name.
It's only 6 letters each name, but they just can't be bothered... they even got it wrong in 3 (!) places when referring me from my GP to the physiotherapy wink and no matter how often I tell them to correct it, the next letter will have a new variation on it.
