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. After, I will take math courses at the nearby community college. Math is one of my main passions and I partake in math competitions along with take math classes outside of school. A How will colleges view skipping two grades? Will colleges see this as a negative

Taking advanced math courses is a positive thing! It only serves to strengthen your applications! When colleges are evaluating your transcripts, they are considering the course rigor and the success you achieve given that rigor. By taking these challenging courses and exams so early in your high school career (and doing well in them), you've got a leg up on a lot of your peers!

I would reframe it as "testing-out" instead of skipping.

Hello,

I'm in a similar situation to you, but I'm in 10th grade and taking Alg II. I'm hoping to get a 4-5 on the AP Calculus exam in 2022-23. If everything goes as planned, I'll be taking AP Calc BC next year. Also, you must choose between taking AP Calculus and BC exams in the same year, per College Board policy. You can't take both AP calc exams in the same year even if one signed up for both courses in school. The normal exam registration deadline for the 2022-23 session (November 15) has already passed. If you register before March 15 (the final deadline), you must pay a $40 late fee based on the original $96 registration fee. If you get a 3 or higher on the AP exam, colleges will look favorably on you. You need to ensure you can get at least a B or A in the math course that follows. Otherwise, if your grade suffers as a result of your skipping, it might negatively impact you for college.

Hope this helps

Hey there! I'm also a in ninth grade and taking Honors Algebra II, a class available for freshman-juniors at my school, and while I haven't yet studied any precalculus or calculus, and math is not my passion, I did skip several years of math in middle school. As long as you do well in math classes, colleges will view this positively! Although I would advise that you pace yourself so you don't run out of math classes to take in high school.

Good luck with Algebra II and your AP exams!
