Am sorry to tell you that your chances are very low
second CS attempt cannot be erased from your CV
Can I ask you how did you prepare for CS?

your scores are also low

Hopefully you will pass the CS this time
and hopefully you'll get some replies
even if you don't you still have the scramble
you never know you may get a call in the last minute
pray to God and things will be good

Just in case you don't get matched this (God forbid) then you tremendously increase your chances for the next year

Do Step 3 and get high scores
Do 2 months USCE, anything even if it is observership
Get good American LORs

Am sure you can make it

Yes, when fail a match you can boost your applications for the next year. Like by doing more USCE, research, LORs, Externships, etc.

Of course there's the disadvantage of getting one year older but that can be offset with these measures
