    You'd have to e-mail them to be sure as its clearly not standard qualifications.

    In the UK where 3-4 subjects is standard, Oxford want chemistry plus one other science (but then go on a long spiel about how biology is useful i.e. for you with 6 subjects it is likely they'd expect biology). Cambridge states they give preference to those with 3 sciences, so with 6 subjects i think you'd definitely need 3 sciences.

    This is info available on their websites.
