Listening Failed step 1, scored 186 (74)!

Hi freinds

I am an IMG and and got my step 1 score recently , I failed and the score was 186 (74), I didn't know exactly to be happy for not passing with a low score or be unhappy for failing it! I don't know how it's gonna affect my future.

I was good in patho and was weak in pharm and physio,,I just studied FA and did UW online, I didn't do any NBMEs to assess myself.

Could you pls guide me what is the best to do to fix my weaknesses and is it better to pass with a low score or fail? I just could sleep 2 hours the night before the exam because I'd got cold and maybe stress was part of it
!
I appreciate if you reply..

Passing with low score is worse than failed attempt.

Next time, read FA again, do Kaplan Qbnak, do NBME, and sleep the night before!

thank you zebra85 for the useful reply...I think working on more questions would help me to get better scores and also sleeping well the night before! I've heard most of programs filter the applicants who had failed attempts,,is is true?
