    Any oxford medics here?

    What in particular does Oxford look for? i heard so and so number of A*s at GCSE.

    I went to a rubbish school, but came out with 4A*s and 6As, will that suffice? The school's average is way way below this.

    There is lots of GCSE data, amongst other things, on their website

    Probably not no - see above.

    They do give special consideration to personal circumstance including particularly deprived postcodes and schools which have a particularly low 5A*-C rate. The national average is about 60% - is your school's significantly below that? Even if it is, there is no knowing exactly what they will do with that information.

    E-mail them if you want - they might give a more precise answer - though be aware their incentives are to get you to apply.
