    Hello,

    Just wondering if anybody here was a cat 2 applicant and applied to NSW - if so where did you end up? HETI have confirmed they will not release this information in their upcoming report and I'm mostly seeing whether I could get into the liverpool or bankstown network.

    Thank you!

    No category 2 applicants missed out on an offer (or really have ever missed out on an offer unless they withdrew their application) as category 3's do get offers every year.

    You'll have a reasonable shot at getting into Liverpool or Bankstown given the (relative lack of) demand to do internship at these places in the Category 1 cohort.

    That said, my advice above is from observations of small numbers of people and not based on any HETI publications (which, like this coming year, do not show the proportions of Category 1/2/3/etc final place offers at each network.)

    Mana I am a category 2 applicant hoping for the Hornsby network, in order to maximise my chances should i stack my remaining preferences as you've outlined in another post, or does this stacking only benefit category 1 applicants? I'm aware that there is a fair bit of uncertainty with the Hornsby network with the opening of the new hospital

    As a Cat 2 - just preference in the order you actually want - the system has very few places proportionally after the Cat 1s all get a bite.
