I've just graduated from City university London with a first class in law. I'm taking a year of to work, but next year (2021) I'd like to apply for a masters in either Oxford or Cambridge.

Can someone tell me how seriously they take applicants who don't go to Russell group universities? The City Law School has a good and decent rep though it's not LSE or UCL haha. I have worked very hard for the first and I also got a near 80 in my dissertation.

My second worry is that my First year grades were horrid, I'm talking a whole bunch of 2.2's (these didn't count towards my grade), but they still look very bad on my transcript. Is it worth me applying to oxbridge?

If you would like to apply to Oxford or Cambridge, they prefer top grades throughout.
