Advice on improving my chances of getting into UCs, T20s etc.

Currently a 11th grader in India (Class of '26)

- Intended major: International economics and/or International relations.

- Sophomore year: 94.3% (we don't have GPA) (CBSE Boards)

- Class rank: 2/40

Planning on taking the SAT and IELTS in early 2025.

ECs:

- Student President of Finance club: Elevated financial literacy by organizing conferences and delivering inspiring speeches for aspiring entrepreneurs within my school.

- Model United Nations organizer: Led school MUN as event organizer and editor-in-chief.

- Commerce fest: Led as Student President and Marketing Head for the Commerce Fest, educating peers on business, profit-making, and accounting principles. All profit from which was donated to an orphanage.

- Student Council (Stuco): Led winning house group as Vice-Captain and Captain in grades 9 and 10.

- Creative Writing Club President: Secured multiple writing contest wins- Scriptwriter for 3+ school events; Creative Writing Club President and founder, honing public speaking skills.

- Online student magazine: Founded and led school magazine, focusing on topics such as mental health through writings and articles. Held online conferences with some of the best known psychologists.

Since I'm a CBSE student, I haven't really taken any AP classes and taking them here is kinda expensive. It is absolutely necessary to take AP classes and if yes, are 2 AP classes enough? Also, As an international applicant, are my ECs and academics good enough? Any suggestions are much appreciated!
