For medicine at Oxford the average number of A*s (i.e. 8s or 9s) among applicants is 8 (which you've got), for Cambridge medicine it's 7. Among medicine offer-holders it's 10 and 9 for Ox and Cam respectively. So you might have a better chance with Cambridge since the standard of GCSEs isn't quite as high.

does it matter whether they are 8s/9s?

atm Oxford have said that they don't distinguish between 8s and 9s - they're just treating them as A*s
