    I will be undergoing a background check by FA before long and want to get things in order as I here they can be difficult about things.


    1)What exactly is the procedure for the check? Do I just provide them with all the details of my secondary school/university and they ring up to confirm the grades?

    2)What do they need in terms of references? I worked part time as a research assistant, but did the work over the internet and never even met the Professors. Are they really going to ask for references here? Or is it just a matter of calling the numbers I provide and asking if I worked there?

    3)Will they check my extra-curricular. Some of these will be an absolute nightmare to confirm if so.


    Thanks.
