Question The Importance of IMG Med School Performance?

I am currently doing my first year in the MBBS course in India.
I was the first year mbbs marks count and play a major role when applying for residency? Do the residencies look at all the marks attained all 4 years of medicine? Or does the USMLE have a bigger importance when applying for residency?

Thank you!!

Medical school performance is not very important for IMGs. USMLE scores are much more important to get into residency.
