The final admission to IIM depends on the CAT score as well as the performance in Interview round. To get the interview call from IIM K you should get More than 95 percentile in CAT . Your Academics are quite good. After getting the Interview call, if you can perform well in the Interview round you will definitely get admission in IIM K.
You have a decent score in your academics but iimk has very high Cutoff and thus you'll have to aim for more than 99 percentile. But that too will not guarantee your selection for the college. It is possible that candidate who gets call from iimk may be rejected there. For any IIM atleast more than 98 percentile is required as different IIMs have different criteria for call.

Hello dear aspirant.

You past score is not going to matter that much. Now you have to appear in CAT exam and after that if you qualify that you will be having a written ability test then after personal interview. This procedure makes your merit so try to score as much as you can.
Ok good luck
