“This isn't Stacking up: Stacking my preferences will ensure the outcome of the algorithm will give me the network I wanted". - MYTH
It has been claimed by applicants that stacking the network preference list will improve the chances of being allocated to a favourable Network of your choice however, this is NOT the case. Conversely, applicants choosing to stack their network preferences can have a negative impact on the percentage of applicants receiving offers to preferences 1 – 6. HETI strongly advises that applicants should preference networks in descending order according to where they most likely want to work. It is that simple!
