Default Help! IMG Med School Perfomance

I did not receive good marks in my final MBBS examinations, I had health issues and just had a month to prepare properly. Otherwise my academic record has been good in other years of MBBS, but my final MBBS performance has reduced my aggregate/rank in class considerably.

What I wanted to ask is, how does IMG medical school performance matter in the following respects:
1. Getting electives
2. Getting a competitive residency if one is willing to take the chance to put in research years/ mph

Is there any IMG out there who was in a similar situation? With an average or poor med school performance who matched a good university program or a competitive specialty? Will good step scores offset a sub par MBBS performance? Will appreciate the forum's input.
