    Hey,
    I want to apply for Medicine in 2019
    I wanted to volunteer in a care-home and they agreed and let me. They said that I have to do a DBS Volunteer Check so I paid (04/01/18) . It has been nearly a month and I am still yet to know if the DBS check has gone through and been successful?

    How long does your first DBS check actually take?
    I want it as soon as possible because I want to get more experience before I write my personal statement

    I've had four checks done over the past few years and sometimes had it back within a week, sometimes it can take longer.

    Is it normal for it to take over a month?

    They're quite variable so I wouldn't worry - you should get the letter rather than the organisation that applied. When yours does come back make sure you register for the update service (you only have 19 days from getting the check through) as that will make it quicker and cheaper for you to have further checks with other employers.
