I am really sorry to hear that. I copy this from ECFMG website. It might help you a little bit.

For exam applications submitted before January 1, 2012, the current rules apply. The current rules are:

For the computer-based examinations (Step 1, Step 2 CK, and Step 3), you may take the examination no more than four times within a 12-month period.
For Step 2 CS, you may take the examination no more than three times within a 12-month period.


It means that you can apply it as soon as possible considering you fulfill that rules. I think you still can apply for residency this year if you take your CS exam before December 31st. May I know in which part you failed the exam so I may probably suggest you appropriately for your prep ?

you should take the CS exam again as soon as possible. "as soon as possible" means the earliest point possible in which you are ready to pass. i highly recommend studying with a partner who can be your mock standardized patient . practice the cases in first aid as if it was the real exam. good luck!
