Sincere advice - don't give up but have a back plan (like research or work in home country). With this score you will be cut by majority of program filters (you need to pass filters for your application to be reviewed), however you still have a chance if you get 240+ on CK and will have step 3 passed (you have enough time to do that). Bottom line - work hard... harder than you used to.

And congrats on passing !! ))
