Oxford doesn't offer a physics foundation course, you'd need to apply for the MPhys (with the option to instead graduate with a BA instead). Admissions statistics are available on the University of Oxford website (your chances of getting into the uni aren't affected by where you apply but if you apply to a more competitive college you're more likely to get pooled to another), although if you're meeting typical offer grades it's less about the grades you get and more about you and your aptitude for physics.

please ignore this post, it is incorrect.

oxford offers a foundation year in physics within Lady Margaret Hall. it is incredibly competitive, but focused on providing places for people living in deprived areas and low income families. if these apply, and you have good grades, go for it! otherwise, it is difficult to get in even if you have perfect grades

Sorry if I was wrong, I didn't realise there was a specific LMH thing.
