Basically I have my heart set on veterinary medicine, AAB at A level with a third predicted A to be completed in my gap year. bout 17 weeks total work experience between completed and planned.

One problem, when I was 15 I went through a bad phase and as a result I have a reprimand on my police record for theft (the value of under a fiver) It was an idiotic, childish mistake, and I have never regretted anything more. It is not a criminal record or criminal conviction but it will show up on an enhanced CRB check that you have to have done when entering a vet med course. It was over 2 years ago and I have been in no trouble before or since.

I would just like some honest opinions from anyone applying or already studying on how much this will effect my chances. I have emailed my unis and their replies were pretty vague, as they obviously cannot promise anything either way. Has anyone been in/ known anyone in a similar situation.

Thanks

Can't say I've had a CRB check, to be honest.

We had to fill in a form for it for the interviews at nottingham. And then they actually send them off when you accept a place I think.

It would be worth asking each university you plan to apply to as to how it effects your application.

Nottingham do CRB checks, I don't think the others do.

I can tell you now that I accepted my offer back in January, and it certainly wasn't a condition of my offer. Nor have I been sent any forms since.
To be honest, even if the majority of uni's did do them, I highly doubt it would affect your application too much. I mean, it's not even a record, just a reprimand for a petty crime. They may ask you a couple of questions, but providing you provide them with all the details and could show your remorse like you have here I'm pretty sure they'd shrug it off. I reckon the most they'd do is ask for an extra personal reference or something.
