IIMs use a composite score allocating different weightages to parameters like CAT score, academics, work experience, diversity etc. for shortlisting candidates for WAT/PI. These weightages vary from institute to institute.
The parameter of academics(which is your matter of concern) is weighed from 20% to 76% while computing the composite score.
Among them(considering top 6 IIMs), the colleges with the lowest weightage on academics as per the latest data are as follows:
IIM Lucknow:
CAT score: 60%
12th:10%
Grad:10%
Work ex:10%
Diversity:10%
IIM Kozhikode:
CAT score:75%
12th:7.5%
Grad:7.5%
Work ex: 5%
Diversity:5%
Please note that these weightages are at the discretion of the college and subject to change in any academic year.
Based on the performance of WAT/PI, a final score is computed, depending on which admission offers are rolled out. The final score has zilch or very low weightage on academics.
Considering that your academic performance have been on the lower side, your chances of getting shortlists for WAT/PI itself is very low. But depending on the weightages, you can compute for yourself if you can manage to get a call.

Also, this was only about IIMs, there are many good colleges like FMS, SIBM, NMIMS etc. which have zero or low weightage on academics. You can, therefore, definitely take a shot! Good luck!
