    Im about to start year 12 in the summer, I just received my GCSE results and I'm quite happy about them (I got 6 A*s and 5 A's), However midway through year 11 I was given an SLT detention (long story short- fighting with no injuries), which is kinda serious. This is literally a one off as I've NEVER received any form of detention prior to this. Will this affect my applications to universities in the future? Do universities see detentions and if so, how? Thanks a lot.

    Nop.

    Your tutor(s), teacher(s) usually would never put anything that will be detrimental to your application unless they absolutely hate you.

    Universities only know about these things if your referee includes them in your reference.

    They won't do that unless they have genuine doubts about your suitability for university - so make a good impression on them.
