Admissions Advice

Will admission officers consider that no AP/IB courses are offered in my school?

I am a current junior and I want to ask , if admission officers will consider the above said information. Most people advice to take private tests but even the nearest test center is approximately 600 kms away from my home. Should I mention these details in my application? Will they consider it?

So AOs absolutely consider that. Your counselor should send a brochure-like thing to schools and in that it will highely likely include courses offered. But they will look for rigor such as honors or advanced classes. But if your school doesn't offer them its the same as no APs.

From my understanding Admission officers will see yo had no opportunity for rigor then essentially nullify that data point likely causing more weight to be put on GPA and other academic metrics such as ACT/SAT and rec-letters.
