Because its a Scottish Uni.

Scottish students get shagged when we go down south in terms of extremely high offers when we already meet the entry requirements, so perhaps its a way of saying Edinburgh only want Scottish Students and telling English ones to GTF.
well if they do favour Scottish students over English students then i'm REALLY gutted. I was rejected and it was my first choice. I am Scottish, i've just been living in England. All my family live in Edinburgh and it would have been perfect for me to go there.
You can always ring up and ask why they rejected you, i'm sure they'll have a valid reason.

The scottish uni's don't favour Scottish students over English, NI and Welsh students, they just have more Scottish applicants per place. Why? Because universities south of the border do discriminate against those that have Scottish qualifications. I know plenty of people who have slaved away at SYS only to be told it is just the same as an A-level which is rubbish, it is considerably higher. Scottish students are routinely asked to get higher grades to enter English universities than their A-level holding counterparts, despite, imho, the scottish education system being much better than that south of the border. However the benefit is that Scotland gets to keep many of its brightest young people and educate them in Scotland.
