Pre-clinical medicine: What subject combinations are acceptable at A-level (or equivalent)?
Whatever your qualifications, we would expect particular excellence in Chemistry (compulsory), plus at least one of Biology, Physics or Maths. Any choices above and beyond that are up to you. Some applicants choose to take just science subjects and mathematics, whilst other applicants choose an arts or social science subject. Both types of subject combinations are acceptable, and we do not express any preference for one over another.
Above all, you should choose the subjects that most interest you and in which you expect to do best.
You can view our recent admissions statistics to get a sense of which subject combinations are popular with applicants to the Oxford A100 course.
