Why would they be more likely to accept you?
Diversity quotas aren't a thing in UK universities.

In America racial quotas actually disadvantages POC, that is specifically Asian POC.

Universities do however have various schemes in place for students from disadvantaged backgrounds.

tbh it's not school policy as positive discrimination and diversity quotas are illegal in the UK. see here on the University of Cambridge website:

https://www.equality.admin.cam.ac.uk...ositive-action

says:
'Where positive action has been taken to encourage applicants from disadvantaged groups to apply, every applicant must be considered on individual merit and selection for interview and appointment must be based strictly on the agreed selection criteria.'
