Name on Registration ticket

Hey, my name is Fouad Nara, in my ID it's written Fouad Na'ra.
I know it sounds stupid but does the ( ' ) really make a difference? I put my name in the Registration ticket as it is on my ID but I never wrote Na'ra anywhere else... In my collegeboard profile it says Nara. I just want to make sure that no complications happen.

    It should be fine. You can call up the college board and double check but I think it won't matter as long as the name is close enough and the photo on the ticket matches the photo on the ID. If they tell you it needs to match exactly then I am sure they will be able to do that for you and re-issue the ticket. I would call them just so you remove this from your head as a worry.

    I will assume that's not your real name that you are listing her on a site with confidential in its name. But no, it will make no difference.

    I have a hyphenated name and I still can't believe in this day and age how many computer systems need to remove the hyphen. Same with your apostrophe, I would imagine. This has never given me any trouble, though, and nor should you have any. Good luck!
