Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 10th Nov, 2019

You are being worried over nothing. There is no specified mentioned pattern of signature. It is your personal way of writing down your name and it can be in any form. Only that matters is you uploading the signature following the instructions. So do not worry about. FMGE doesn't have any specific guidelines as not how to sign. It has only guidelines as how to upload your signature. So do not worry about this and continue to prepare for the exam.
