    I'm thinking really far in advance because I want to do an masters in English at Oxford but I'm worried that if I end up going to somewhere like Nottingham or Birmingham for my BA rather than a top, top uni that I won't have any chance of getting in.

    I'm applying for Oxford this year - I'm in year 13 doing 2018 entry. I don't know if I'll get in but I'm determined to do an MA there.

    Essentially, am I ruining my chances of going to Oxford eventually if I go to somewhere like Notts or Birmingham now?

    Makes very little difference.

    During the interview stage, I befriended a physics PhD student who had attended Edinburgh for her BSc but got into Oxford for her MA and PhD.

    I hope that answers your question

    And to make things even more confusing there are the "bachelor" postgrad courses too, just because Oxford likes to be awkward.
