I’ve already met the universities’ entry requirements / standard offer requirements for what I’ve applied for (gap year applicant) but I’ve not got offers from these unis. Is there a chance I could be rejected?

Yes there is 'a chance' even if it is relatively small. For example, you could have a weak personal statement.

The Universities have until early 2018 to reply, they may be waiting for more applicants to submit their applications before handing out offers. Don't worry because you haven't received and offer yet, if they haven't declined the application it means they're still considering it.

Mate don’t worry I have achieved A*A*A* and only have 1 offer out of 5, and I applied just over a month ago.

It’s just the consequence of applying to good universities.

I applied early October last year (with the grades already attained) and I didn't hear back from UCL until March! Usually they wait to see what the standard of this years cohort is and compare your existing results with their potential ones. Just be patient, I'm sure it'll all be fine

They have until 3rd May (although they usually make decisions by March).

Edit:
e.g. UCL says:
https://www.ucl.ac.uk/srs/academic-m...ions/decisions
"UCL endeavours to ensure that all applicants who have applied by the 15 October/15 January deadlines will receive a decision via UCAS by 31 March in the calendar year of proposed entry, or a calendar year ahead for deferred entry applicants."

And
http://www.ucl.ac.uk/prospective-stu...rocessing-time
"Application processing time

We aim to provide a decision within six working weeks of receiving a complete application and references. However this may be longer due to other external factors. Some selectors wait until the programme application deadline has passed before considering all applications together or in a number of different rounds. Other selectors consider applications as soon as they are received."

Don’t worry too much about it. If I’m not mistaken, top universities like UCL take roughly 8-12 weeks before giving a response, which would give adequate time for them to gather enough applicants to compare. I received my offer from UCL in just over 2 weeks applying a month ago, but I think that was a pretty anomalous response time.
If you’ve applied during October, you could generally expect a response around December/January time.

Don't try to overthink this! I sent off an application to Bristol before the October 15th Oxbridge deadline and just got an offer today, so it took over a month to get it from Bristol! (might be due to my course though)

But just to add, just because you meet the grade requirements, doesn't guarantee you a place. I am certain most people who apply already have those grades predicted, so they need other things to differentiate people by (e.g. personal statement)
