I was just wondering if anyone knew whether if you happened to get higher grades in your A-Levels than predicted, and decided to reapply in your gap year, if you decided to reapply to some Unis with higher grade requirements but applied again to say, 3 unis with the same grade requirements as before that you've already had offers from, as back up, is it likely that they will accept you again and offer you a place?
Sorry weird question I know... any help would be appreciated

There is no guarantee that you will get an offer.
If you already have your grades and they are higher than their standard offer then you are more likely to get an offer than if you were applying with just predicted grades but it is not certain.

It is highly likely that they wouldn't really notice that you'd applied in the previous cycle and certainly the out come of that application would not influence the next years one - you would be up against a totally different group of people meaning just because you failed to get/got an offer one year does not mean the same thing would happen the following year. There are people on tsr for example who got offers for medicine last year then reapplied to the same place this year and failed to even get an interview. Additionally, if you were on a gap year they would obviously be looking for evidence in your PS that you plan on doing something useful with it, so it would depend on many factors
