    I will be applying to unis this year for medicine, and was previously thinking oxford, however I know oxford is very GCSE heavy, and my proportion of a*s is not very high. Would I stand a good chance at cambridge, or would I be at a significant disadvantage, and also what is the average number and proportion of a*s for medicine at cambridge

    If you look at the website for medicine undergraduate they ask for Cs minimum at GCSE in Sciences. But give offers of A*A*A at A level.
    So to be competitive you need 6 or 7 A*s at GCSE
    (Average Cambridge applicant - correct me if im wrong)
    and 3A* or 4A* at A2 to
    The very minimum being 2A*and A at A level,
    They favour maths biology chemistry - that kind of combination at A level. instead of sciences and humanities/art subjects.

    There are numbers to give you an idea here.

    The BMAT and interview will be critically important.
