Good profile overall. With this work-ex, a 710+ should be the minimum you should get. Acads are not your strongest area so you need extra effort to highlight the achivements and the traits you bring to the table in the application. For e.g. "sound general knowledge"- how have you gained, what have you done about it and how it would be relevant for your peers at ISB?

All the best!

Hi, Will low scores in 10th and 12th and a break in schooling impact the admission to ISB?

Actually they will ask why this is poor in your interview. And interview shortlisting is based of GMAT, your previous college , extra curricular and your work ex, acads can be ignored if other things are good
