He said that I was extremely close to an A, as it was a band 3, so as my prelim was an A band 2 I can not appeal because- and I quote "you need to be more than 1 band of a difference between your prelim and final exam to appeal". Which is the most idiotic thing I've ever heard as getting a high B should increase my chances of a successful appeal.

Ahh, okay. That's totally different! What he's saying is that he doesn't feel like your evidence is strong enough to get a successful appeal - not that your exam grade is too good to appeal!

Hi, I'm planning to arrange an urgent appeal for a Higher Mathematics grade B to get moved up to a grade A. This appeal is very important as it will confirm my place for an Engineering course at The university of Edinburgh. It for my Firm choice too, so life depends on it
I got an A in the prelim and was predicted an A for the final exam but sadly achieved a B. I've also go alot of evidence of acheving high percentages on mock test exams officially marked by the teacher. All A-grade submitted homework over the year nd hopefully a good reference from the teacher wiil be gd.
Please advice me if you think I have a good chance of getting the appeal
I'm afraid we can't tell you about the likelihood of a successful appeal. The process is too idiosyncratic for us to make an honest judgement, and we simply don't have access to the information, or the expertise, available to comment.
You've got the appeal sorted out, so all we can do from here is to wish you the best of luck! There's nothing else we can really say here, or that you can really do. Just hope for the best, and I hope you make your firm!
Don't worry about not making your firm - it's not the end of the world if you don't make it into Edinburgh. You've still got plenty of other options; your life certainly doesn't end if you don't meet the offer! Plenty of other universities with great courses that can lead to equally great futures.
