The answer depends upon why your visa was revoked and whether you were subjected to expedited removal. The CBP officer concluded you were inadmissible, but it is unclear on what grounds. Some grounds of inadmissibility can be easily cured while others are permanent bars to future admission. You should schedule a consultation with an experienced immigration attorney.

Clearly they thought you were trying to immigrate into the US.

It appears the admitting officer believed your intention was to stay in the US permanently and not temporarily as a student. At this point you need the help if an attorney before you apply for another visa.
