Default In which year is it possible to begin residency?

Hi all,
Let's say I enroll into a foreign medical school in 2018.
I then graduate by the end of June 2024, since it normally takes 6 years.
During my school, I gave the USMLE Steps 1, 2 CK and CS.
Is it possible for me to apply into residencies in the same year of graduation (2024), assuming that I only submit my USMLE steps 1, 2 CK and CS? What else would I need? (LORs, etc.)
To become ECFMG certified, I would need my medical school diploma, which comes by the end of June. After that, the process to become certified would take a few weeks and through ERAS application system, I would have to participate in the residency match of the following year (2025).
What can IMGs do to continue residency in the same year?
