    Question name on certificate must match IC?

    i'd like to know if anyone here have some certificates, e.g. degree certs that have their names printed that doesn't match their IC exactly?

    e.g. your name on IC is Kwok Fu Sing, but your degree cert printed Andy Kwok Fu Sing instead. is that acceptable? has anyone ever faced problems or issues or legal matters in such cases?

    TQ!

    My fren got into the same hussle when he realised that his MBA degree has Ah Kaw Tan instead of Tan Ah Kaw as in his I.C.. He went back to the uni registrar and got it amended. But that did not stop him from getting his dream job!

    If you care to look at all those certificates that your family doctor hang out there in his clinic, you will notice that they are all not in the right order. It doesn't matter, really. Only a half-past-6 municipal council officer will try to be funny when you apply for a licence to practice.... but then he is half-past-6!

    That's true.. many Malaysians now have an English name in front of their surname, then followed by Chinese names... and when they go overseas, the Mat Sallehs will get it all wrong... hehehe.. but it shouldn't be a problem unless there's a spelling error...

    so i guess if you have an English name that is not in your IC, it is quite OK to include it into your certificate?

    It is okay if your full name is on the certificate, with an additional english name. Same goes for cheques.

    if i am not mistaken, foreign uni normally will put your family name after your name. example, you family name is lee, then they will put it this way 'Ah Weng, Lee'

    is kinda practice...
    Signature....what signature ???

    Yes you can write your cheques in any Malaysian language and the Banks cannot reject them. Dats why you need our children to learn and master their mother tongue.

    By the way, varsities nowadays ask you how you'd like your name to appear on the testamur before they issue them. Did that for my MBA but institutes other than unis don't ask ... hantam your nama as it appears, according to their system...
