Questions regarding coursework
I'm an international student and I'm planning to take admission in the States. I noticed that my chances for my target universities are very low as shown by CollegeVine. It was mostly due to the fact that in my country no AP or Honor courses are offered. However, the coursework of our 11th and 12th grade have about the same elements of an AP or honor courses. In my transcript, all the maths course I've done have been generalized as Math, instead of mentioning the individual courses taken. Should I mention somewhere on my application that I've already taken courses such as Calculus?
Thanks a lot!

You can definitely write about it in your additional information section. Keep in mind that your counselors send a "school report" to the colleges that you apply to. This means that admission officers will know what classes were available to you. As long as you took a rigorous courseload relative to your school, you should be fine. You won't get penalized for something you can't control.
