    I am currently in year 12 and got GCSEs 10 a*s and 4as. I'm thinking of applying to Cambridge rather ham oxford on the basis of my low proportion of a*s which I know that oxford look at (low for oxford standards!). What does Cambridge base entry on for medicine? Also I know that they look for high as results, Iv heard 98 ums, how is this even doable 😂 I do chemistry biology and maths so any ideas how I can get really high scores in each?

    I know someone who got into cambridge to do medicine a few years ago with 5A*s at A Level and 3 Grade 8s in different instruments - he was crazy. Idk if thats like the level expected for everyone or not, but I would make sure you have an extra curricular to a very high standard/ long term volunteering and extremely high grades.

    I'm in year 12 and want to do medicine too, but not at oxbridge because the expectations are crazy !! Plus you don't get to go into a hospital until your fourth year!!
