    hey! I got accepted to Dundee for biological sciences and I am starting in September! Firstly let me inform you that I had exactly the same questions as you have! What you need to know is that applying for biological sciences has nothing to do with medicine regarding competition and interviews. I applied to several universities and none of them asked for an interview and I don't believe that it is considered a competitive course.
    Your university choices seem very good, with a variety based on what they ask. Dundee is a very good university with better environment than edinburgh and glasgow! However Edinburgh is by far the best
