Use the chancing calculator. It’s not perfect but it’s the best one I know. And it is fairly accurate and is in my mind for ivy caliber school accurate with in a +-10% all of the time but is more like +-5% the majority of the time. Just remember this is what the algorithm thinks and it doesn’t count essays rec letters interviews etc it just measures rigor academics and extracurriculars.

For rigor I don’t know what opportunities are offered to you at your school but if no AP IB Honors classes are offered just put 8 ap classes as the algorithm doesn’t do well if you had zero opportunities so just artificially fix it.

Hope this helps and please comment if you need clarification.
