Which rigourous courses should i take up?

I am a 10th grade student studying in the Maharashtra state board in India. My school does not provide AP and IB courses. I really want to get into Harvard and hence i have started working on my college applications. I have shortlisted few of the majors out of which i am planning to take one; economics or business studies or statistics. I have decided to take commerce stream. Any suggestions from your side will be appreciated.

currently i am going to participate in-:

1) NTSE Exam

2) Silverzone English Olympiad

3) Silverzone Maths Olympiad

I will be appearing for my board exams too.

Something that would really help you would be edX courses. These are offered online from prestigious universities (Harvard, Cambridge, Stanford, etc.) and you can complete them completely online and these would be great to add on college applications. If you would not like a certificate from that course, then you could even complete the courses from these prestigious universities for free!

There are always alternate options to APs and IBs

These include:

Cambridge A Levels

Cambridge International Exam (CIE)

Baccalauréat (France)

Advanced Level Examination/A-Level Exams (India)

You can also sign up for AP exams you can read more on APs in India here: international.collegeboard.org/students/ap/taking-ap-india

You can take the AP exams within the buildings of another school or other testing centers.

Hope this helps
