Unhappy Possible step 2 cs failure

I'm very worried about my step 2 cs . I prepared fairly well but i just had a bad day and was pretty nervous throughout the exam.
Now although im fairly optimistic , what are my options should i fail to pass this exam. I had a very good step 1 score , and i am currently preparing for step 2 ck.

I half heartedly applied for this years match (due to my fears listed above of course) and everything seems to hinge on my cs scores.

Is it possible top retake and ace the exams before then? or should i just throw in the towel and wait for next year.

PS anyone who has matched with a step 2 cs fail , your comments are extremely welcome . I also know that matching with a cs fail is difficult so any comments barring the obvious are appreciated.

Default Don't give up hope!

I know the feeling. After my Exam I was very worried I would either barely pass or barely fail. I was stuck on that thought for a few days until finally I decided to just focus on something else and forget about it until my results came in. When they came in 2 weeks ago I had palpitations remembering everything I did wrong but I was worried for no reason I passed with flying colors, high marks in all 3 categories so my advice to you is do not worry until you have to!!!
