Default below what mark is considered a low score for an IMG?

HELLO everybody

well can anybody please classify anyway possible how low of a score on step 1 is relatively acceptable so one has a fair chance of getting residency? yeah i get its a "big picture" kind of a thing as to step 2 and LORs and bla bla but im asking whats the lower limit of a fair score for an IMG on step 1!!!! below 230 is the dead end below 220 is the dead end!!!!

any kind of response is very appreciated

thanks

You should just look at the IMG's score that matched to a residency to get an idea about the needed scores .In general no passing score is a dead end , but you will have to make compromises and supplement your application with other stuff
