I got 9 9s at gcse, take alevels bio chem maths physics and epq, go to a state school (they only offered 9 gcses does this give me a disadvantage?) and I have done some work experience and volunteering. Do I have a chance at getting into Oxford medicine?
Yep - on the limited information you've provided here, and if you're on track for A*s in your A levels. You have as much of a chance as any other serious contender for a place.

Depends on your BMAT score as Oxford uses a 50/50 BMAT/GCSE weighing but you definitely have a chance there! Make sure that your referee mentions that you cannot take more than 9 GCSE's at your school. There's an oxford medicine applicant thread here but I can't find it rn

As above, it will mainly be dependent on the BMAT. Make sure as noted that your referee states in your reference that 9 is the maximum GCSEs your school offers - the average number of A*s at GCSE for Oxford is I believe higher, but if your school makes it clear they are unable to offer more they should hopefully not prejudice your application as a result of that. Since you have 100% proportion of A*s at GCSE and provided you are predicted at least the standard offer for the course, it will really come down to the BMAT.

Note that only 4 A-levels are required or expected, and taking extra A-levels won't confer any advantage (especially at Oxford, where they aren't even scored pre-interview and post interview the interview itself is probably the dominant factor). I'd suggest dropping one of maths or physics (depending on which you think you can do best in).

Please post in the dedicated Oxford A100 2022 entry thread: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=6910626

For future reference, there is a thread for each UK med school and their course here is the index: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=6962492
