How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
You should start by taking the electives that are offered at your school that you are interested in. The important thing is to find something you love to do and want to learn more about. Then, I suggest looking for institutions in your community that offer extra classes, such as community colleges, or something similar, as I am not sure what the equivalent is in Chile. You might get college credit, and even if you don't it shows that you are passionate about the subject and that you went the extra mile to learn more.
If there aren't any near you, you could look for online classes. There are plenty of programs that offer online classes or tutoring, as well as high school honors courses. One last option would be to self-study. Even if this might not fulfill an honors class and count in your high school profile, it shows great discipline and motivation. Learning on your own about a subject you are interested in is as valid as taking advanced classes.
Hope this helps!
Kind of what the other person said. Most colleges know that what classes your school offers and will take that into account. Besides, the thing that they are really interested is how much you challenge yourself. To "show" them this I would try to either
- establish a club
- get a leadership role
- get a job so that they can see you can balance interests and academics ( same goes for doing athletics and Fine arts )
These are some ideas of how to do that, but you might be able to find some more that align with your interests.
