Medicine at oxfordWatch
I got 4A*s and 5As. Is that good enough for medicine at a good uni?

To be honest, you have very little chance for Oxford. They should be fine for other Medical Schools though - there is no such thing as a good uni for Medicine, they're all very good and will allow you to become a doctor.
Firstly I would certainly have a look at the admissions statistics on the oxford medsci website that is linked above, as it will give you a reasonable idea of the competition.
That being said, although offer to interview is based primarily on BMAT/GCSE score it is worth noting that the GCSE score they use is weighted against the 5A*-C (including English Lang + Maths) % at your school. So theoretically, this system is designed for people like you! From speaking to tutors at open days they simply want the best people to study at oxford, so going to a poor school shouldn't effect this.
Therefore, my advice would be to apply, if you are confident of a very good BMAT, ideally above 65 to make up for your GCSE's (scoring system is on the medsci website), good A2 predictions, and if your college/school say that you would do well at interview!
Finally if you decide not to apply, don't worry! There are loads of amazing medical schools of which oxford is only one. but always remember that "those who don't apply have a 0% chance of getting in!"
