Residence. The form will ask whether you have been known by any other names, this is in case there are records under another name. It will also ask for your address and your National Insurance Number.

See: How residence is assessed by the system.

Criminal convictions. The form will ask questions regarding whether you have ever been convicted of a crime in the UK or abroad, and whether you have been arrested or charged with an offence that you are awaiting trial for.

It is important to answer these questions truthfully. Even if the offence in itself is not a cause for refusal, deliberately lying can be a cause for refusal.

If you have doubts about whether your criminal history may affect your application, you should seek legal advice.
