    I think its most likely going to be that everyone gets replies at the same time because there is no interview process

    I remember Michelle (grad rec for HL) saying that there will be an AC for HL BaSE?

    I distinctively remember there was no AC for the programme itself. You get called to an AC for either a TC or a Vac Scheme if you get on the Gold Programme.

    Also I got back my WG test report from Hogan Lovells for HL BaSE and it was a 76%. If they’re taking in 30 people, I don’t have my hopes up ahaha

    When and where did you get that report if you don't mind me asking? Did they email it to you?

    I emailed them asking for the report and GR was kind enough to send it to me! It took a while though, but you can try emailing them to gauge your performance.

    Does anyone know how much weight they put on the WG for the HL BaSE? Cannot work out if there is more emphasis on the application or if they're looking for the best 30 WG results with good apps

    In my experience the WG is more of a test to automatically clear out some people, though if HL's benchmark percentile is 18% they'll probably put some weight on it. Can't imagine it taking precedent over applications though

    Is there still any point applying to the summer vacation scheme if we get rejected from BaSE?

    I asked this to Michelle during a virtual event and she said being rejected from BaSE will not impact VS apps in anyway

    Does anyone actually know what date the BaSE begins? I applied ages ago and am not expecting to get it, but i remember it just said 'late November' when I applied.

    Is this 18th Percentile for the BaSE programme or the Vac schemes or generally? Thanks :)

    (I've heard how HL have like 80% as their benchmark lol :D

    Someone above said GR confirmed it was 18% rather than 80%

    Hi guys!

    I applied for the Gold Base programme. It stated how if successful, candidates will be fast tracked to the Vac Scheme AC!

    Does anyone know if I should apply for the VS separately, or if I should just continue with the Base Programme(haven't heard back), and wait to be fast tracked?

    To my understanding, you will automatically get an AC if you participate in BaSE, in which case you will not need to fill in the VS application. However, you can still directly apply for a VS concurrently if you would like to do so.

    Thanks! Will probably apply after I hear back from BaSE(which should be soon since it mentioned the programme starts in Nov?)

    Does anyone know whether their academic references for the HL BaSE learning hub have been contacted yet?
