A discrepancy on a background check report means that something is different from the verified information that was pulled during the background check.

When you apply for a job and provide information and the employer pulls a background check on you and the information in the background check is inconsistent with what you've put on your resume then the background check will say there's a discrepancy and they will then need to verify more information.
