Default does failing a course in clinical year affects matching?/

hello friends, I am an IMG from India. Wanted to ask, if someone fails a course (say, medicine), but clears it 3 months after in the supplementary exam, will that hurt his chances to get residency match. M asking coz even though m a good student, internal medicine department in my college is crazy and i 've missed lots of classes this year cz i was preparing for step 1 which i took few days back.
