Hello @Pranjal549

Wow, great coincidence. My brother is also going for LLM at Cambridge this October.
Your acads are good and professional background is unique, but I would advice you to gain some work ex before applying to top B schools.
Most top B Schools prefer to admit candidates with a few years of experience. Internships are not counted as full time work ex.
Make good use of your time at Cambridge, try to get some exposure to Judge (the B School at Cambridge) and attend some courses if possible.
This will give you a first hand experience, help you understand if an MBA meets your career goals and also help you in some research to build realistic career goals.
Good part is that you are planning ahead- you should read to help in your plan.

Best

You have strong profile and you can get admit into top B-Schools.
You have not mentioned your GMAT score, with good GMAT score you can easily target top 20 Business schools.
