I got 2 8's, 7, 7-6, 2D*, 2 6's, and a 5

I feel that's SO bad, which it is but like is it good enough to get by or not (if not I don't know what the hell I should even do)?

And should I not even bother applying to oxbridge or like there is a slim chance still, and use my opportunity someplace useful?

Nah no Oxford for medicine unfortunately.

No have you got actual statistics?

Look up your school online and see the statistics of attainment 8, and how your school did compared to everyone else.

Your grade 8 could mean a grade 9, so it could work in your benefit

If not, then no. You’re expected at least 8 A*’s for Oxford

But for Cambridge, they have 0 GCSE requirements so you could get in if you do well on the BMAT, and interviews. Then get A*-A at A level

Oxford's med applicants have an average of 8.5 A*s; their offer holders have an average of 10.8 A*s.

^^ For Oxford. Stats from https://www.medsci.ox.ac.uk/study/me...cal/statistics

Cambridge's stats is probably similar but they publically state that there is no minimum GCSEs requirement for their medical course. This is compensated by requiring high BMAT and their standard offer of A*A*A.

Oxford is still way more competitive though, both for home students and internationals.

Ok so now, you’ll have to include it / ask to put it in your reference if you really want to take the risk.

I’d advise you not to though, although it’s possible. It isn’t comfortable...
