Birth Certificate, Minor Name Mismatch

My government issued birth certificate has minor issue which is that it doesn't mention full name of mine and my father's.

For example, if my name is MyName_1 MyName_2 son of FName_1 FName_2, my birth certificate mentions MyName_2 son of FName_2. Everything else is in place, my all identity and other documents have my correct full name and that of my father.

What is suggested, should I submit the same Birth Certificate or should have it revised. My worry is changing anything in Birth Certificate is such a long process that it will take alt least months but I need to get ready to lodge my application in about a week's time. Please suggest.

Thanks in advance.

I strongly recommend that you get your Birth Certificate reissued with the correct names and format. Pakistan is a high risk country because of the various security issues so any anomaly would be investigated thoroughly and may end up with a bad result.
