Dear aspirant ,
In some colleges and universities for MBA , a student applying for MBA outside the country have to give GMAT exam . Students applying for MBA in England have to give GMAT exam , it is compulsory . However , there are some universities in England in which it is not compulsory to give GMAT exam instead of it students having a work experience for more than 2 years can apply directly for MBA program . In Germany most universities accept TOEFL score and not GMAT score , there are universities which accept both TOEFL and GMAT score . In Poland all types of entrance exams are accepted like TOEFL , IELTS and GMAT . So for betterment of you , you should first choose a country for which you want to study MBA and then second look at the eligibility criteria at different universities and according to that give a appropriate entrance exam . Also you can do is that choose a university of that country and then check which entrance exams for MBA they accept .
Hope it helps.

As per your requirement, i would say that as mentioned above your educational details, you need to be at your very best in each step.
First stage is CAT
In which if you are a general candidate you will have to get atleast 95.5(Cutoff changes every year) to get call from New and Baby IIM.
Coming to Old IIM(BLACKI) many things are considered
10,12, Graduation score .
Gender ( For female Candidates)/Academic diversity (For Non Engg)
Weightage given to above mentioned criteria is different in every college,you can visit the college website to get the details.
So having work experience is always an advantage but like I said the weightage varies.
The weightage for WAT/PI is usually high in Old IIM close to 50%.
Personal Interview is the one that either make it or break it.
So PI usually decides whether you will get selected or not.
For exact details you can visit the IIM website and check the criteria which will have all the details.
