Edinburgh do not even look at PS for shortlisting, so your careers teacher is rather out of date!
They use GCSEs 25%, A levels 25%, UCAT 35%, SJT 15% for shortlisting.
This year you needed 8 x 8/9/A* GCSEs, A*A*A at A level to include A*s in bio and chem, a B1 SJT and 3000 UCAT for an interview, if an RUK applicant. It was less than this for Home applicants. Dropping on any of those elements meant you were unlikely to make the cut off, unless contextual. I know several people with full academic marks, 3100 UCAT and a B2 SJT who were not interviewed
