Is there anyone who got into Oxford to study medicine that didn’t do Maths Alevel? If so what Alevels did you do?

Oxford just require chemistry and one other science (bio/physics/maths/FM). While the majority do take 3 STEM subjects, it's not required and they are only slightly less successful on average than others. The only UK medical school that you need to take 3 STEM subjects for to be competitive is Cambridge (where those taking only 2 STEM subjects are massively less successful than others).

Edit: it seems Oxford have moved away from using GCSEs in shortlisting for good, so the BMAT is then the only factor they consider when shortlisting at the moment as far as I can tell! So you need to be very confident you'll do well in the BMAT.

They publish the percentage on their website. But as pointed out, they do not need a 3rd STEM subject, and even though this is what many people who got offers were studying, it is correlation not causation

Dear sirs or madams, I sincerely apologize for not being conversant with your regulations so could you kindly forward my request to Balliol College for myself to waive my college day attendance for 24 June, 2023 and 18 September , 2023 as I reside in Botswana in Africa as such my attendance would be too expensive for myself if my CAS is not issued so could you forward my request to Balliol College through the facility of my Student Room#4729656 on [email protected] or [email protected] and Said Business School on [email protected] to kindly issue my CAS as I went to Balliol College in 2003 on some seminar as a St.Clare's , Oxford liberal art student and I am familiar with its surroundings or alternatively I could only attend the 18 September , 2023 Open Day then be resident in the United Kingdom until my :Oxford MBA: program commences and I could thus be fully enrolled as such my CAS is still imperative to my studies, thank you, sincerely yours :Mpho:Kesitwe:Tshoagong
