Are Course works mandatory for IVYs?

Advanced Placement and Honors and other stuff are not provided in my school. Am I at a disadvantage? If not the acceptance rates should be calculated according to that.

No, they want you to take the most rigorous classes available to you. If that means your high school doesn't have AP Classes, then they expect you to take the maximum level courses possible for you. In addition, if you really want more challenging coursework, seek out your local community college. They have some classes that are open to high schoolers in intro subjects, which could give you good college prep.

So while Adri is on topic I’ll provide my explanation. Everything is in context if you have zero out of zero that’s not a inherent disadvantage but you may be knocked as ivies may not know if you can handle it so your gpa has a lot more importance.

4/4 is better than 5/20 AP classes.

You may Be asking about the collegevine calculator for chances if so scroll back a bit to ambers question from yesterday evening (8pm US CST) that’s the the explanation I use for chancing algorithms questions.

Hope this helps and please comment if you need clarification as I’d be happy to help clarify!
