In the school that I currently attend, students take algebra l in 8th grade. However, I was in a different school in 8th grade and I joined my current school in 9th grade. So everyone already had an algebra l credit except me. I'm now in 12th grade and I still haven't taken the course. Is there a fast way to get my credit? Like a test or something I can take to give me the credit? I know I can just take Algebra 1 at my school but I don't want to take it with a bunch of little 9th graders

Can you ask your district if there is a way to test out of the class? Most school districts offer ways to test out of classes (like for students wanting to get ahead in math). I think for my school district, you can take CLEP exams to get credit for high school classes you haven't taken yet, but I could be wrong.

Why do you need to get credit for Algebra I, a class you haven't taken yet? Are you missing 4 years of math or something? If you have taken 3 maths already and plan to take math in 12 grade, why would you need this anyway? It's not a college requirement to take Algebra I, if your HS let you take Geometry, Algebra II, and Pre-Calc, that means they didn't care if you didn't take Algebra I.
