Passport Match Question (expiration date)

Had a questions on the passport match. I know the ticket is support to match “EXACTLY’ but I had a small technicality question:

If on my exam ticket it reads expiration as:

15 MARCH 2025

and on my passport it reads as:

15 MAR 2025

Is this acceptable? I assumed so but wanted to make sure.

Ouch MAR is invalid… you best go to your passport agency and make sure they fully spell the “March” date.

I have a passport where the expiration date is written as “31/12/2022” whereas my exam ticket says “31 December 2022”. 

This hasn’t caused any problems so far. 

It ain't what you don't know that gets you in trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.
