    I am currently in Year 12 and am looking to applying to Oxford to study Medicine. I have achieved 8A*s (2 x9 and 1 x 8) and 2As. Do you think I have a chance?

    Yes, although be aware that Oxford medicine is an extremely competitive course. Your personal statement and your A level grades are incredibly important, so focus on those

    In addition, work experience with people who are old/sick is very valuable, and better to have than work experience shadowing a nurse or doctor or whatever

    No. You need 20 A* at least. Jokes aside, yes they are fine.

    They don't use it as much as other unis do, but for entry to other unis it is crucial that your personal statement is very good

    Indeed, I am hoping to apply to Oxford too! I feel like I am doing too much work experience though...I have around 5 weeks of it and am not sure how I'll be able to explain that well in the characters provided for the PS.

    literally, 7 A*s probably isn't enough, 8A*s just is.
