    Does having a criminal record affect your chances of university (eg assault or possession of offensive weapons)?

    With a username like that I'm taking nothing for granted.


    In all fairness though, if you've been convicted of a crime, and your conviction is unspent, your chances of getting offers are below zero. Warnings / FPNs etc give you a marginally better chance at getting into uni, relatively speaking, because you won't have to declare these on your application.

    Unless OP wants to go into medicine/nursing/dentistry/physio etc that require a clear CRB check.

    FPN = fixed penalty notice ------> £60 fines for traffic violations / public disorder...

    When you are convicted, the crime will remain on your criminal record for x number of months / years, depending on the nature and the severity of the offence. If you plan on applying to uni before this conviction "runs out", you must declare it on your UCAS form.

    Maths is fine.

    Generally those courses which provide you access to vulnerable individuals will require a CRB clearance.

    according to the CRB people...as long as police are not involved...you can do anything and it won't show up....

    just a tip if you want to do a little shoplifting or other activity that will not end in police involvement if caught
