Hi,people
I am currently studying in year 10, doing my GCSEs. In future I would like to study for a medical degree. I would prefer of course to go to Oxbridge. But it is too hard to get there. COuld u tell me which grades should I get at GCSEs in order to get to Oxbridge.

Grades aint everything to getting in... bit id have thought about a minimum of 3A*s, but I think there are ppl with lower grades who got in.

Well it's certainly not easy for overseas students...

I got 10A1s for GCSE equivilant.
Doing GCE now...
My BMAT was slightly above average.
I got rejected by Cambridge for Medicine.

They are particular about ur interview...there's three interviews for locals.

Just do as best as you can in your GCSEs -- they will help in your Oxbridge application, but there isn't a set standard to aim for.

Yep - you need to do as well as you possibly can, but there's a lot more to getting in than just that.

I'm so bored of all these thousands of Oxbridge threads by people who haven't even finished their GCSEs yet and all the have to do is press search and they'll find their answer.

They could be; they could not be. I'm sure there are people here with worse grades than that. However, as I've said elsewhere - you're only in year 10, stop obsessing about Oxbridge and grades.

Dan - are you taking the piss?
