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!

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 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.
