No High School Honor Classes System in India?!
Answered

I've been researching and applying to a few colleges of my choice and it's pretty visible through the research that Honor and AP classes (coursework) is a huge factor when it comes to admission. I'm gonna take 5-10 AP classes from EdX by the lecturers of Rice University but I have got no idea what can I do as a replacement for Honor. I am aware that the colleges know that some international countries do not have the same system but I wanna make sure that I get into my dream University so please if somebody could help!!

The university knows the rigorous coursework of the subject in Indian Schools. They will treat that as Honor classes. Like Mathematics in grade 12 covers trigno, calculus all of that whereas calculus is a separate honor class . So no need to worry

I wouldn't worry about honors-level classes. It's more important to show course rigor like APs, IBs, and online College courses in your academic narrative. Honors classes are only a 1/2 step between regular classes and APs.

You don't need to worry. If you're doing CBSE, it's nearly equivalent to an AP and a bit above honours, roughly.

I wouldn't worry about it. 5-10 AP classes are a lot and most if not all colleges (especially if the high school isn't in the US) look to see how you did with what your school has to offer. I don't think colleges will really care about not having Honors classes when there isn't an Honors system in your high school.
