    I'm an AS student in Year 12 currently having the biggest struggle deciding what to study at uni. Since I study Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Chemistry it's probably going to be an 'elite' subject like Physics, Maths, Engineering, or Medicine. I got 9A* 2A at GCSE and I'm on track to get 4A at AS so I also want to try my hand at Oxford. Any advice?

    Decide upon a subject and only THEN look at whether you want to go to Oxford (if you like the course content, location, tutorial system, etc.) :yep:

    I would follow TheLonelyGoatherd's advice, but a few pointers on the subjects you have listed:
    Maths- at uni this becomes very theoretical and abstract so keep this in mind
    Physics- if you are looking for more applied maths, this is more what you are looking for
    Medicine- do not apply for this unless you 100% understand the competitiveness, level of commitment required and the way of life which you essentially commit yourself towards. This is not a degree which you do to give you flexibility in future options.
