@OP and anybody else in OP's shoes:

I'd reiterate my earlier advise that you SHOULD not bother to draw so much attention to things that will be normally understood as a mistake, doing so will only warrant further suspicions and investigation into your application which of course is the first thing you will want to avoid.

Below is an excerpt from the UKBA website:


RFL4.3 What is a false representation?
A false representation is when an applicant or third party lies or makes a false statement in an application, either orally or in writing. The application must be refused even if the false representation is not relevant to the application or your decision and even if the applicant was not aware that false representations, information or documents have been used.

However, you must should not refuse an applicant because you suspect that false representations have been made or because of minor inaccuracies in the application, for example an inaccurate address or mis-spelt name on a visa application form. See the ECO Toolkit for guidance on how to assess an application.

http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/policyandlaw/guidance/ecg/rfl/rfl4/


Again, these things are being checked by humans not computers, they are well trained to detect and separate an obvious human error from a false representation.

You are mis-interpreting that section. . . However, you must should not refuse an applicant because you suspect that false representations have been made or because of minor inaccuracies in the application, for example an inaccurate address or mis-spelt name on a visa application form. See the ECO Toolkit for guidance on how to assess an application.

Miss-spelling in visa application form is NOT the same as submitting personal documents with a letter missing. If you mis-spelt in your application form they could see that every other documents have the correct spelling, in that case its a genuine mistake.

Miss-spelling in visa application form is NOT the same as submitting personal documents with a letter missing. If you mis-spelt in your application form they could see that every other documents have the correct  spelling, in that case its a genuine mistake.

All documents are seen and counted as official.  As a matter of fact, the most important document in your application is your application form, because this is a property of the UKBA and it provides a complete representation of yourself to the agency.  All other documents are considered supporting evidence, if anything, you will expect that the agency will place more weight on the accuracy of the information submitted on the application forms.  Your supporting documents will only be checked for genuineness and relevance.

In this case, i will argue against the logic that an official will accept a misspell as genuine on your visa application form while the same would be taken serious enough to deny an applicant a visa if it were on a Waec result certificate.  All documents submitted are considered as official documents, and minor inaccuracies will definitely be overlooked. If my middle name was spelt ending with a T in 20 other documents, it will be considered irresponsible and unprofessional for an ECO to deny my application based solely on the fact that my Waec result is missing that T.

The UKBA isn't hoping that all applications will be completely devoid of human errors, so long as your documents are 100% genuine and you meet all requirement, you are more than likely safe.

Hi Everyone, i'm really happy to read how you guys are trying to help a brother out here. Please i have a little challenge and won't mind if you guys can share your opinion with me: I am a 2012 DV lottery selectee, i've had my interview in January and collected my visa a week after the interview, but the the lady that conducted the interview said she would like to verify if my WAEC CERTIFICATES (I'm combining 2 WAEC results) are authentic which I gladly consented to because I sat for the SSCE/GCE exams MYSELF and the certificates are authentic, but the problem is 1. on the GCE certificate my names are correctly spelt but my year of birth was wrongly written(1984 instead of 1985) 2. On the SSCE certificates has my first name as TUNJI instead of OLATUNJI and the DOB was entire different from my real DOB. I noticed this error in 2009 and my elder sister helped me to contact someone who is a WAEC official on what to do to correct the discrepancy and she said it going to be difficult to correct it and that i should just go and swear an affidavit to that effect, which i did. Now, on the day i got to the embassy for the interview, the affidavit was part of my document but the Nigerian lady that checked my document in before the interview returned some of my document, including the affidavit i wanted to explain to her but i presumed she knows what she's doing.
A week after the interview (the day i collected my visa) i sent them an e-mail requesting for my WAEC Certs. they called me on phone and said that i should come [with my visa and the brown parcel they gave me] so that we can discuss my waec certificates. I went there two days later as instructed, submitted my International passport/visa, after some minutes the official that conducted my interview came , told me my WAEC Certs. are fake but returned my parcel and visa to me saying i'm qualified for the visa (i think based on my current academic level/ profession) and that they can't release my WAEC certificates and if I need one i should go and collect another one from WAEC.
Please people, pardon me for the lengthy writeup and for writing on someone else's topic-space.
Please i need all your responses ASAP.
THANKS.

Can't you get another result statement from WAEC?
Re: Justwise, Pls Help For Error In My Waec Result For Uk Admission by kunlewoye: 7:01pm On May 02, 2012
Dears,
I plan to apply for my visa later this month or early next month. The issue is with the mistake (1985 instead of 1986) in my year of birth on my WAEC cert that I just collected last week ( I had been using my statement of result since 2001!). Please, I schooled in Osun state but I work in Abuja now. I was at the Abuja WAEC office today where I was referred to the Ibadan zonal office because my school is grouped under that "zone". I simply can not start to lobby for a new one now as it's almost too late; what with the "3month minimum and 6months max" time frame for a new one to be issued. Please I need your very honest opinions on here as I have learnt issues regarding integrity of documents, particularly those pertaining to date of birth, are very crucial to one's chances. What should I do? Swear an affidavit? Get a letter from WAEC?(doubtful of its credibility) Ignore it? Please what is my best bet? All suggestions are welcome. Thanks!

There is always a blank sheet attached to visa application form and you are allowed to use extra sheet to write whatever you want and attach it to the form



Reading your first post i did not see anything that suggested that you are trying to cheat the system and you explained the situation perfectly.

I schooled and live in the UK. The middle name is of no real significance. Some people spell my middle name Timileyin some spell Timilehin. Some add Olu and others Oluwa. It's a variance on the same name. No one has ever asked me why the difference.

The error is also too insignificant to be picked up. Use your first and last names. If you need to include a middle name use the correct spelling.

Once you start adding affidavit, you are looking for undue attention. Nigerians are already seen in a questionable light so don't add more documents than you need. The quality of the result is more importnt than the misspelt middlename!

God success!
Re: Justwise, Pls Help For Error In My Waec Result For Uk Admission by MOELLIOTT(f): 12:03pm On Feb 27, 2013
On the visa application issue, its unclear if the date on the WAEC results tallies with the date of birth on the passport and other supporting documents. That is what is important.

I hope all went well for you seeing the thread is from last year.

That is not true, your name is your name, whether middle, first or last name,any misspelling will mean a completely different thing, especially when you are dealing with something like visa or international traveling

Some airlines will charge you as much as 50 pounds to correct your name if you misspelt it.

@kunlewoye, I would strongly advise you to tell ur principal to address d letter as To whom it may concern just in case u decide to use it again for future purposes in other fields and areas..
