A conviction is the result of a person being found guilty of a crime by a court. If you appealed against your conviction, but your appeal hasn't been adjudicated yet, you should select 'convicted of an offence' to find out whether you need to tell us about it.
A caution is a formal warning given by the police to anyone who has admitted that they have committed a crime.
Other action' includes any action taken against a person that don't result in a caution or conviction eg anti-social behaviour orders or harassment notices.
