I’ve applied for psychology (bsc) at Dundee, Stirling, Edinburgh, Strathclyde, and Queen Margaret. Anybody applied for these courses or heard back, what grades have you got?

I applied for Edinburgh only out of those. Won’t be hearing back until after the January deadline since it’s a popular course so they wait until then. I got 5 A1s at higher and 6A1s and an A2 at Nat5. Currently doing advanced higher maths, physics and chemistry
Also applied to Glasgow who gave me an unconditional very quickly, Durham gave me a conditional, Oxford offered me an interview 😬 and St. Andrews who like Edinburgh don’t make offers until after the application deadline.

I’m sure you’ll do fine. What’s your first choice? I should say I asked Edinburgh about the entry requirements last year and apparently the unconditionals were given for AAAA or better at higher by the end of S5, so the standard entry requirements on the page can be slightly misleading, however it depends on competition this year
Of course they do have to take 10% of their Scottish (or UK, can’t remember) students from people who live in deprived areas so they make contextual offers to these people to ensure they meet this. If that applies to u then u only need to be concerned with minimum entry requirements.
But good luck and hope u hear back from one of them soon!

I just received an unconditional from Edinburgh. Way sooner than expected as they tend to wait until after the deadline for popular courses

Of my five choices, I also applied to both Dundee and Stirling. Whilst I haven't heard back from Dundee yet, I got a conditional from Stirling a few weeks ago. As far as grades go, I got 4B's at higher last year and I'm doing another two highers and an advanced higher this year.

Good luck to you too, I'm sure you'll also do well. I still haven't heard back from Dundee either but I've gotten offers from Aberdeen and Stirling, as well as Abertay. I'm sure it'll not be long now before they get back to you too.

Heard that they might be replying to EU students after Scottish students so maybe that's the reason but yeah I'm hoping for the best.
