Relax! Every medical student feels the same way. You don't have to be a genius or get gold medals to ace the USMLE. You just have to work hard and more important work smart. 2 years is a lot of time. If you plan very carefully and execute it well, you would be ready to apply next year. On an average IMGs take 5-6 months for step 1, 3-4 months for step2ck and 15-20 days for cs. Plan well, make a timeline and make sure you stick to it. Good luck!
