    I just got my GCSEs and am wondering if i would be good enough to take medicine/physics at Oxford.

    English Language-B
    English lit- A
    History-A
    Spanish-A
    Computing-A
    Maths-A*
    Physics-A*
    Biology-A*
    Chemistry-A*
    RE-A*
    Business Studies-A*

    All in all i got 6a*s 4as and 1b

    Please note i know these results are good and am not trying to show off but are they good enough to go to the one of the best unis in the world.
    For medicine, they generally look for a high A* percentage as said above, but for Physics they are fine (GCSEs aren't super important for that anyway). I'm about to go into my second year of physics so if you've got any questions about the course/applying feel free to ask

    Completely depends on the course, since GCSEs are of varying importance.
