Just keep reading and success has to come to you! I was little bit upset when i scored low in step1 and I regret I wasted few days and didnt start for step2 . I kept on asking people how my score is and where will i match with low score. Trust me, the only solution I found is " GET UP AND GET BACK TO STUDY,DOESN'T MATTER WHAT". you have to trust yourself first and at one day time will be yours. Just keep reading. Failing is almost equal to poor score in step1 I believe. atleast you have now chance to make it better, improve it. So just do it. know your weaknesses and focus on it. My weakness is lack of test taking skill so i am trying to do more questions. Identify yours and work on it. If others can do it, you can do it too.
Hope it help you. Good luck.

Thank you very much for the kind words. I dont have an exact schedule, to say the truth, i find all subjects equally not easy to learn.

Hey,Im sorry to hear that you failed,I think you should start from the beginning(take your time),I don't want to make you depressed or something but I think that you will not pass on your second try if you will do the exam on April,because your score is too low,its almost 50 point from passing score and it's very difficult to increase 50 points in 2 mounts.

Did you do any NBME or USWA before the exam,UW?

its hard to tell but if to take under consideration that passing the exam is around 65% which equal to 192,so 147 is around 48%.

This is probably the most important exam of your whole life and YOU DIDNT KNOW?! Didn't you read what you need to do?! Seriously people it isn't hard to look up what you need to do. Can't expect to pass if you can't even be bothered to look up the basics.
