    The website says:

    Year XII qualification, studied with either the CBSE or ISC examination boards, with an achievement of 90% in each of the five subjects studied. Science subjects may also require that candidates take the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) entrance examinations as a pre-condition for entry.
    A level students must take Chemistry and at least one of Biology, Physics or Mathematics, so it is safe to assume that you need to take these subjects too. I believe Oxford prefers applicants with a 6 or better in the BMAT but there are no set requirements. I suggest you look in the Medicine forum, they have loads of resources for planning your application and preparing for the BMAT.

    The mean BMAT score for an offer holder is 6.3.

    But that is for domestic applicants - international entry is ridiculously competitive. Averaged over the last 5 years, the average applicant to offer ratio is 70. You will need to be outstanding, both for BMAT and in other areas, to get in.

    You will be expected to have medical work experience and for Oxford scientific research experience won't hurt either.

    As I say, 70 applicants per place. You will need to have everything to be successful.
