Edinburgh Offer Likelihood

Im applying for MChem Chemistry and Edinburgh Uni is my top choice but I know its a competitive uni and Im not sure what my chances are of getting an offer is. The grade requirements are AAAB and I currently have AAAA at higher and Im predicted AA at advanced higher and another AA in two further highers. I also have work experience. I've just seen many people with top grades still get rejected for my course at edinburgh and its made me a bit worried about my chances. Thanks if you can help!

That is including Scottish, Rest of UK and International students (I believe). But you know as well as I that Scottish universities generally offer more places to international students (>50%). I would advise getting very good grades and writing a great personal statement. Make sure you have an insurance choice you actually like too, obviously with a better chance of being given an offer.

Edit: Hmm, I just looked more closely and your course is not that competitive. You will have a good chance of an offer.
