Skipping two levels in math.

I am currently a 9th grader who is taking Algebra 2/Trig H. I have already studied through precalculus and calculus, and will be taking the AP Calc BC exam this year. I expect to receive a 5. Math is one of my main passions and I partake in math competitions along with take math classes outside of school. How will colleges view skipping two grades? Will colleges see this as a negative?

I don't think colleges will see this as a negative due to several reasons-

1. You are really interested in math and have taken part in math competitions- That's a HUGE positive that will help in your admission

2. Since you have so much interest in math, you are a prodigy in math as you have skipped 2 grades in math. Colleges will want prodigies in their campus!

3. If you get a 5 on the AP Calculus BC exam, then skipping 2 levels of math will be justified for you. So, try to get a 5 on that exam!!
