    hi all,
    i have a query.i`m supposed to send my ndb score card to the Calif DB,but im in 2 minds about hw to go abt it.I took the exams a yr back n my scores are in my maiden surname.
    I recently got married n have changed my surname.So should I.............
    A) send my score card to the board with a letter explaining the name change n a copy of my marriage certificate(coz that way im sure the scores reach them) OR

    B)send a name change request to ADA n then tell them to send the score card with the changed name to DBC directly.

    im really confused, pl help which option is better n safer.:confused:
    Thank u. :)

    hi dentobabe,

    I think you should speak to the NBDE office, they will guide you. May they will issue you a new score card or they will just ask you send the previous score card with the details of name change. Did you mary in US or in home country? I think if it is in USA then the problem is much easier.

    I think you should call DB and ask them. the change of name shouldn't be a problem. You might just have to submit your marriage certificate to them. That's what usualy is requiered if the name on some document is different from your current name.
