    what level subject do I need to take for studying medicine at Oxford University?

    A-levels? or the equivalent for where you live
    In Chemistry, Biology and normally one other science(maths, physics). Very few people get made offers without all 3 sciences so that's your safest bet.

    You should take bio and chem as they are useful to keep options open in terms of other med schools.

    Maths is correlated with a higher BMAT score, as is biology. Hence why 13% of Oxford applicants have only two sciences, but only 7% of offer holders. Interestingly physics is not correlated.

    But if you don't meet your A*AA offer, your chances are not 7%, they are zero. And uf you dont get AAA you wont get into any med school. So dont make a stupid decision for the sake of a few percentage point correlations that may not be causative anyway.

    If you don't do maths I would ensure extra thorough preparation for the BMAT, though.
