Medical and Law degrees; Oxbridge entry

Medical schools in the UK normally require A-level chemistry and 2 other subjects, all with A-grades. But academic achievement is not the only thing considered, and they also look at your interests, community involvement, work experience and demeanour. Medical staff must be able to work with other health professionals and their patients. Oxford and Cambridge both have early application deadlines, and often have their own entry exams.
