I've applied to Birmingham University, and been accepted. I've applied for my accommodation, to which they have said is all fine and that there is spaces in my chosen halls. However, I've got return a CRB check to them tomorrow. This is because I'll be working with minors, mainly small children. Its to check I'm not a paedophile. With them searching your complete criminal background, it brings up every little blip. Last year, I was put into a police cell and fined for being too drunk. I was fined £70, and promptly paid. I was never convicted of a crime, and I never appeared in court. The university said that should something come back on the report, and it was a danger, they might consider revoking their offer. How bad would a university look at this? It is the only thing I have ever done wrong, in the eyes of the law. A girl who I know, who is studying nursing and midwifery was convicted of assault and actually had a criminal record. The university interviewed her regarding these 'issues' on her CRB check, and were satisfied with her answers therefore let her continue on to become a student and begin the course. In my eyes, this is a lot worse than being fined for being too drunk. The university says they will investigate such matters. I'm guessing that means there's a chance they'll interview me and get my side of the story, and too see I'm competent and responsible and not a wreckless idiot? Someone in the know, or who has an idea please, please get back to me. I should be starting on the 22nd.
