Hey, just thought I’d respond to this as the initial post in this thread was mine. Bit funny that I’ve had an email notification so thought I can’t not say something! So I guess I had a similar issue 2 years ago and this is what happened: I changed to maths, predicted all A*, similar gcses to yourself, lots and lots of supercurriculars to talk about, and then applied to oxford for chemistry but got rejected after interview. I think it’s important to highlight that you can be the most qualified candidate on paper but it still doesn’t work out. I’m studying Chemistry now at a different uni and would say that chemistry as a subject is a spectrum and you have the physical side, but it also interlinks with biology, medicine, pharmacology etc. So what I’m trying to say is that when applying I suppose they don’t care about where on that spectrum you are (as long as you’re on it!) so it’s up to you. At the end of the day do what you enjoy and what you’re interested in. The subjects you are looking at clearly show ability and that will defo come across. Although I do not regret switching to maths as it is useful in a chemistry degree, looking back I don’t think it’s worth studying something you don’t want to do because it’s what you think they want- because it might not even work out. Passion and enthusiasm will get you further than anything else (in my opinion). Good luck, I hope things work out well!
