How bad does it look to get a C in A levels math 1st term senior year?

I am in my senior year at a British school in Valencia Spain. I started at the school in my junior year. Prior to that I was at an American school in Taipei Taiwan for my freshman and sophomore year. I would like to go to an American college/university and so I took A level Maths in order to look well rounded. A levels math turns out to be similar if not more difficult than AP Calc. If I were at an American school I would have been in an Honors math class. What are my chances of getting into a school like Skidmore or Oberlin?
