    Hi  ,I want to know if it is possible to change ima profile name after registering for the exam . I had already scheduled my exam and Authorization letter already received and I am concerned if I change my name whether it will create any problems with prometric centre while appearing for the exam.

    Hi Shifna Mol. K.S. 
     First and very importantly your name should be the same as on your ima profile as well your id card you will take for your examination.
    It is possible to change your ima profile name by Contacting at "" with valid identity proof.
    If the name on your profile and the name on your ID Proof match accurately
    you can write your exam.

    I was in the same situation as you've in now . I realized that my names were miss-matching and had received my authorization letter . You just need to mail IMA regarding the same and attach any 2 of your ID proofs containing the correct change in name and also mention that you need a change of  name in the authorization letter as well they'll change it within a day or 2 and reply back

    Thank you for your support of IMA.
    If you have not taken a CMA exam part IMA will change your name in the IMA database once we receive the items listed below.  
    • Submit a written request which includes your member number, name as it now appears in the database, and your name as it should appear in the database. This request can be sent by email to ima@... 
    • Attach a copy of one of the following accepted, valid, and unexpired forms of identification with your new/corrected name:
    o Passport
    o Driver's license
    o Military id
    o Credit card or bank card with photo id and signature
    o Government issued National country id with photo (signature if possible)
    No other forms of identification will be accepted.
    A candidate must present proof of their identity to be permitted to take the CMA Exams. The name on your ID(s) must match exactly with the name on your authorization letter. Any changes must be made at least a week (7 days) prior to your first scheduled appointment. 
    Please note…. No changes can be made to your name once you have completed both parts of the CMA examination. 
    Contact IMA any time at ima@...

    Thank you.
