Probability Probability of matching

Hi everyone,
I have given step 1, did not clear it and didnt get any elective so far. I am currently working on 2 research papers in my home country. As an IMG, is it advisory for me to continue with the second attempt of the step 1, extend my internship for longer and continue in the same path or look for alternatives? what are my chances for matching because of the failed first attempt of step 1 even if i manage to get really good scores? Also, is it advised to go for observership instead of an elective in my case? Is there any hope or am i wasting my time on this?
Any help will be highly appreciated.
Thank you.
