Isn't RE one of the most respected A Levels? On the Oxbridge list for 'most' acceptable?

i thinks its always worth a try. im not intending on doing medicine myself. but i got 4 a's 1 b n 3 c's at gcse and my teachers are still intending on me getting into one of the high universities even tho im not doing to well in lessons atm either. if u show your teachers that you really want it and work your arse off over the next two years you will get your grades and well at the end of this year.. if you have good grades your teachers will have no other option than to raise your predictions. if theyre all high grade a's then your ums marks will be high aswell and they cant predict you to be low next year if youve alredy got high ums points to add to your final score
good luck xx

"Oxford University is happy to receive applications from students from any country in the world providing that they are studying for, or have already achieved, three A-Levels or other equivalent academic qualifications.

In order to be admitted, candidates must show evidence of an appropriate educational background and good standards of literacy and numeracy. However, the University does not have any formal matriculation requirements, and no requirement for any particular subjects or grades at GCSE"

for medicine only physics with chemitry OR biology OR athematics is required. Nuff said offers are made on the basis of AAA. Just three a levels.

OP: How about you apply for the Access to Medicine course? My friend who is from Bulgaria and arrived to the UK in 2004 has had 3 offers that way; it's for those who come from disadvantaged backgrounds or haven't had the English education system for that long. The grade offers are generally lower, she's been offered BBB. Anyway, how about you do some research on that?

AS & A Levels
Three A Level subjects are required. Of these, Chemistry or Biology is essential plus one subject from Chemistry, Biology, Physics or Mathematics, plus one further rigorous academic subject if only 2 sciences are offered. If Chemistry is not taken at A Level, it must be offered at AS Level, grade B minimum. General Studies is not accepted as one of the three A2 level subjects. If only two sciences are offered, the Science subjects not offered at AS/A Level are required at GCSE Level, ideally at grade B or above.
Grades of AAB will be required at A Level. It is not necessary for a grade A pass to be achieved in Chemistry or Biology. (Although the majority of students will be offering four AS Level subjects, those able to offer only three will not be disadvantaged).
If you are not sure as to the acceptability of your subjects, please check with the Admissions Administrator and for any further information on 'rigorous' subjects.

is that supposed to be telling me "you still have little chance to become a doctor but u can be a nurse instead" xD? ;P

No course not, being a nurse isn't the only career the NHS offers...!!! GRRR, it annoys me when people say that

theres things like clinical psychologists, occupational therepists, physiotherepists, nursing consultants, radiologists, oncologists, porters, biomedical scientists, pathologists..and ofcourse clinical physiologists lol

Just don't assume that medicine is the only 'medical' realted field out there, like i said, being a clinical physiologist gives me the same wage and status as a consultant, the only difference is what we specialise in and our managerial roles lol

actually, Medicine is the one course at Oxford where your GCSEs - in conjunction with the BMAT - determine whether you get an interview.
