You can still match. Do better on CK. Just don't fail any of your exams and you'll be ok.

What specialty are you looking to apply for eventually?

Heard that they wont even bother to see other scores and CVs if our marks are low in step 1. One professor even told me that they just filter the scores below 220. How true is this?

I also have marks similar to you. I am also confused whether to continue or not. What have you decided? Did you do further research on whether we can get residency with low scores?
