Default low step 1 score

I got my result of step 1....its very low...195/79....first attempt...I really don't know where I stand and what to do now...Can I ever get a match for anything anytime...I graduated in 2006...
I really don't understand,,I am an IMG with a GC.....But still is there any chance whether i can match anywhere anytime in any field?should i give step 2 CK or leave it all???

First at all, calm down... Second, just focus on your step 2/step3 to achieve a high score because those one are easier... try to focus and get above>95 and of course you will match,, As dr. conrad fisher said, if you scored lower at step 1, score higher in the next 2 so you can overcome the lower one....

So go with confidence, as many says... the hard part is done, now focus to get the best for the next.

Hi after giving my exam I felt terrible....like I was not hoping this....infact I started preparing for step 1 again though I thought I may or may not pass...I gave 2 NBME's NBME 3....188
NBME 11.....200
But I was in a situation where I could'nt have postponed my exam...my eligibility period was getting over and everyone was forcing me to give the exams so i had no choice...
but NBME is the best predictor for your scores in the real exam...
anyways...now I have no choice but to do my best in CK...All the best for your results....
