Does applying to Oxbridge affect my chances of getting into other universities?

Universities don’t generally know which other universities a student has applied to. However, since Oxbridge candidates have to submit their UCAS form by an earlier deadline, universities are likely to know if a student has applied to Oxbridge. This does not affect per se the chances of a student securing offers from other universities. However, there is always the risk that a university might not offer a place, particularly if it deems the student strong enough (on paper) to secure an Oxbridge offer.
