No, everyone knows you’ll only get into Oxbridge medicine if you have 31 A*s at GCSE and 40 years of medicine experience as a surgeon. Also, make sure you have a piece of the moon as an offering, else you obviously haven’t tried hard enough

Below average for oxford so you’d have to get a very good bmat

No I am genuinely just asking sorry if it seems that way. I thought a lot of people applying to study Medicine at Cambridge and Oxford have all 9s across the board

As Sososnakesaid both your number and proportions of a* are below average for Oxford but fine for Cambridge and then there’s also bmat- personally I would say Cambridge is more likely if you get a*a*a predictions and also would allow you to do the first bmat meaning you wouldn’t be applying blindly

You have above average number for Oxford but below average proportions but from your gyg you have extenuating circumstances don’t you? Also, Cambridge would be fine

Some people post even though they have no idea what they're talking about - just ignore them.

The relevant stats for Oxford are here. You'd need a very good BMAT. Cambridge looks at GCSE less and is much less competitive anyway and you could apply there if you want.
