    I am an international student with 9 A* for GCSE, A levels predicted at 3 A* for chem, maths and physics. decent work experience shadowing and in and A&E department. I also have a very broad extra curricular, musical, drama, MUN, and sport. What are my chances realistically of getting a place at Oxford for Med seeing as you only have less than a dozen places? and what score would I need for BMAT to have a chance?

    I am in a similar situation to you. Same stats as well. I would advise not to apply to Oxford as they have 255 international applicants for one place. Cambridge is a better choice as they have 20 places for international students.

    Bio isn't required by Cambridge. Chem is. + 2 more sciences with Maths and Physics satisfying that requirement.
