    I haven't yet but I do have just received a conditional offer from Dundee but not from Edinburgh yet (though I think that Edinburgh are really late with making offers - or so I have heard).
    They're not late at all. I received my Politics offer and my Philosophy offer toward the end of November.

    BBB is the offer made to most successful applicants, but iv heard most are predicted and achieve much higher grades. How many Edinburgh students are offered a place with BBB as their predicted grades?

    Sorry if there are lots of threads on this!

    They do it so that they have a greater pool of applicants to choose from. It's unlikely they will give you an offer for a lot of their courses if you are 'only' predicted BBB though; the majority are A-grade candidates.

    No idea, but I can say for certain that not everyone who receives an offer has predicted grades which are AAA or anywhere close to this. I had ABB predictions. I don't think predictions really make that much difference at the end of the day, as all they mean is that you're more likely to meet a BBB offer were you to be given one.

    you are more likely to get an offer if you do a subject that isn't in demand by students like chemistry probably

    I guess it could be easier to gain an offer for the courses in the College of Science and Engineering, as they are in general less popular than the rest of the courses in the uni. Also, if you look at the entry requirements for people holding other qualifications than A-levels/Highers/other British qualifications, the requirements for the science courses are lower than for the rest of the courses.

    You're also (presumably) international, and your fees arguably speeds/lowers admissions quite a bit.
