Hey guys!!

So I am a student studying Bsc Biology. I really want to study medicine, especially at Oxford. I will be applying in 2019. Besides from getting a first class in Bsc and a very good BMAT score, what else should one do to increase their chances in getting in?

Thank you!!

NOTE: THREAD IS FOR GRADUATE ENTRY MEDICINE AT OXFORD! (2020 ENTRY)

Also, I got 3 As and 1 A* in my A Levels; A* in Biology.

Thank you!!
Oxford is all about how evidence-based medicine. About how doctors should be learning and making medical decisions from literature and novel research rather than just watching what the boss does (which may well be wrong/out of date) and blindly following guidelines. As such, they like to see a familiarity with research, or at the very least, close familiarity with reading and analysing research. That is probably what you should focus on.

Hey guys!

I haven't seen a forum for 2019 entry Graduate entry medicine for Oxford so thought I would start one!

Maybe we can list our degree, result, BMAT score (if you've done it) etc?

Best of luck guys
Hello hello there,
I’m planning on applying in 2020, since I’m in the second year of biochemistry. I’ll just be sticking around so I can learn from your experiences. Since no one has applied yet, is it ok if I ask you a few questions?
what did you do to prepare for the application like work experience and the test requirements? I’m assuming you are applying when application open later on this year, but have you previously applied to medicine? And if so did you get to the interview phase?
Thanks in advance and good luck!

Hi there! I'm currently at Oxford, but also thinking of applying for graduate medicine for 2020. Not sure if I will yet because it's one of many many options, but thought I'd comment anyway.

I do biomed, and apparently around 7 people in each year (of 40) end up doing graduate medicine, much to the annoyance of our tutors who desperately want us to go into research!

Oooh. I think the great bulk of people here thought you meant to begin in 2019. Many of us here were interviewed earlier in the month, and are now waiting!
