Hi, i really like the medicine course offered at oxford. However i don't do Maths a level. The a levels i study are biology, chemistry and psychology. I am not sure if they would even interview me. Do you think they would give me a chance?

Look at the requirements of EACH college at oxford and if there's a college that doesn't need maths, yes you would have a chance

Yes! The course requires chemistry plus ONE of maths, further maths, biology or physics. You meet these requirements, therefore they do not have grounds to deselect you due to a level choice. You can link psychology to medicine in your personal statement. Plus, Oxford medicine actually includes a lot of essay writing, so you can spin this in your favour too.

The main thing with medicine at Oxford (as I'm sure you are aware) is having extreeeemely high GCSEs. I believe no one with fewer than 7A*s has been given a place in recent years, though i could be wrong. If you have stellar GCSEs and you work hard at your BMAT then you might as well go for it, seeing as you would be a very strong candidate to get offers from other medicine courses
