I took courses named A, B, and C during my master. They are all strongly related to the field I want to apply in, and I got top grades in them.
Due to administrative reasons, my transcript shows course names D, E, and F instead. They are all either slightly or not at all related to my field.
Names D, E, F are the names of courses that were replaced by A, B, C that year. I don't really understand why they were not changed in the official transcript, and I may not be able to get a transcript with the correct names.
How can I make sure that this does not hurt my chances when I apply to PhD programs in the field of A, B, C?
I am thinking of sending a version with the correct names, and attaching the official one, with a note that explains the issue. But I don't know how that will be seen by admission committees (they may wonder why I didn't just get a fixed version from my school).
Edit: I want to apply to machine learning programs. The A, B, C courses are about machine learning, deep learning and artificial intelligence. D, E, F are “3D engineering”, “image processing” and “image analysis”, which seem irrelevant in comparison. This seems to me like a blow to my applications.
