Chances for St Andrews CS

Really hoping this doesn’t come off as some weird humblebrag post because I am considering taking a gap year and the only major thing holding me back is that I’m really scared I won’t get into St Andrews for CS with direct entry into second year for a second time. I saw so many people getting rejected with 3 A* this year. Deferring isn’t an option for me as I would be reapplying to Oxford. Here are my Canadian percentage marks:
Calculus and Vectors 97%
Advanced Functions (this is maths) 98%
Physics 99%
English 100%
Computer Science 100%
Religion 99%
So equivalent to all A*, I’m not sure how many.

My offer was an overall average of 85% with 90% in mathematics. I got into CS with direct entry into second year this year with a higher predicted mark in Calculus and Advanced Functions (100%) but my overall average this time is higher (97 vs 98.8 this year). Any thoughts on how likely I would be to get in the second time? And has anyone heard of St Andrews holding grudges against reapplicants who rejected their first offer?
