    Thank you very much for great advice, guys. I will apply to the majority of top10, broadly within top20-40 and to about 1-2 school in top40-60. I hope that this approach will make sense.

    A First is the highest grade available, and is the equivalent of a 4.0 or 4.3 GPA in US terms.

    Given your profile, I don't think you should waste time (and money) applying to Top 40-60 schools. Your safety schools will probably be ~ rank 25-30 or so. If you apply too far down the rankings with an inordinately good profile, chances are, they won't accept you since they'll know you're applying to them as a safety measure (and hence, know that it will be unlikely for you to accept if they provided you an offer). They'll rather provide offers to students who actually want to attend those programmes.
