    This is what edinburgh say
    "Entry requirements for most of our programmes are four Highers at specified grades to be achieved by the end of S5. Where entry requirements have not been achieved by the end of S5, Highers in S6 may be used to meet requirements but the minimum grade requirement will increase. For example, where the minimum requirement is ABBB by the end of S5, the requirement will increase to AABB or ABBBB by the end of S6" so although it's possible they will likely ask you for higher grades because of it.
