    Hi I’m hoping to apply to uni but I have a police caution for wasting police time what are the chances I get into uni? It’s on my dbs as I’ve had one done. Will this be a no? I never imagined a simple caution would have a big impact on my career.

    Does the course that you are applying require the DBS? If not then the caution is likely spent and you won't need to declare it. If you are doing paramedic science or medicine or something, then you may face a few issues. Just be prepared to defend the caution and explain what happened

    I believe that the caution will show on dbs. In.your situation, I'd be honest about nor just the caution.but what led you to getting charged with wasting police time. Being honest, I'd be surprised if caution for that offence sropped you being a nurse.

    Might need to go on UCAS though, in the convictions box- that may not apply if it's spent.

    I dont think it does as the conviction isnt a relevant conviction. That just my opinion.
