    Do I need to do five subjects at a level to stand a good chance at getting a place for medicine at Oxbridge ?

    no and doing 5 is a stupid idea as there is simply not enough time to do well in 5 subjects. pick 4 if you really want but 3 is more than enough if they're all science subjects

    No, the offer will be for 3 and great grades in 3 with all the other relevant attributes is enough. 5 is complete overkill.

    I did 5 but only because I enjoyed the subjects. Doing so is definitely detrimental to your chances, not beneficial.

    Do 3, or 4 if you want to.
