I have received communication from Cambridge that they have put me on waiting list in consideration for the interviews. They will update me in the third round if I will be having an interview with them. That would be approximately 2.5 months from now.
Is there anything that I could do between now and then to support my application and increase my chances of getting an interview.

shivam9205 have you been assigned an admissions officer to whom you can submit updates?

You might consider getting a ding analysis to get some outside perspective on your application.
In the ideal case, you can clarify some things in an update letter - ideal case is for you to have a tangible update on something ie test score, leadership, or job - and kind of sneak in some other stuff in the update letter based on the ding analysis.

Even if you can't leverage that feedback 100% for the update letter, it can inform your other applications. And I would strongly recommend that you not wait around hoping but actively submit applications to other schools for R2 or January batch if applicable.

I should first ask, is your GMAT 20 points over the average if you are Indian, which I'm guessing you are? If not, they could be giving you a strong hint to retake the exam.
