Early Action is a non-binding program, where you apply early, and find out early whether or not you get in. If you do get in, you do not need to go to that particular college or university. In most cases, applying early action does not give you a marked increase in your chances of admission. The benefit is in finding out early (generally from December to January) whether or not you got in.

I'm an Indian studying in a CBSE school! I took Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Psychology without Mathematics in my classes 11 and 12. However, I studied Math till Grade 10, have enrolled in an online edX certified Calculus BC course for my senior year and gave the Math 2 SAT subject test in June. I'm targeting HYP and other ivies for an undergraduate course in Biology (PreMed track). Will this affect my chances considering good ECs in STEM and research in cardiovascular medicine that involves a lot of Maths in it? How else can I prove my competency in mathematics?

There are so many other questions you need to consider before you dash into planning for admission to HYP. It seems that your competency in Math is uppermost in your mind. Please consider the other factors I have listed above. They are very important. I am glad that you have some good extra curricular activities. They will certainly work in your favour.
