Skipped history in freshman year?

<p>In my freshman year of high school I skipped World History so I could fit in my double-period Biology class (which is usually for sophomores or juniors, but I was selected to be in it due to my high 8th grade chemistry grade). I already had basic World History in 8th grade, and this year I am taking AP World History. I am aiming to get into Wellesley.</p>

<p>Many people have told me it is a must to have your core classes every year of high school if I want to get into a good college. Should I be worried? I am now in 11th grade, last year I took U.S. History, this year I am taking AP World History, and next year I am taking AP U.S. History. Will this be sufficient?</p>

<p>I wouldn’t be worried.</p>

<p>I did the same thing actually. I dropped Ancient History in freshman year so that I could take Robotics. What I ended up doing was taking European History in 10th grade, AP US History and Philosophy in 11th, and AP European History this year as a senior as well as Music History… So I’ll actually be graduating with 4.5 history credits.</p>

<p>As long as you take 3-4 history courses over the course of high school, I think you should be fine. History is one of those things that you can easily double block on, too. I know a lot of kids in my senior class who aren’t taking history this year, and many of them have gotten into good colleges already.</p>

<p>As a freshman at my school, you actually CANNOT take a history course. We still send kids to really good colleges every year. You should be fine.</p>

<p>At my school, you take ONE World History class (AP, honors, on-level); I don’t think any colleges will be bent out of shape by your history courses.</p>
