Is Second-String Math Program Sufficient for College?

Question: So I'm in 9th grade taking Algebra 1 this year and I had taken a course that would bump me up to Geometry but unfortunately I failed the test. I want to ask, is taking the regular math stream ( Alg 1, Geo, Alg 2, Calc) in high school good enough for colleges or is it better if I go up one math grade for college?

Completing calculus by the time you finish high school will put you ahead of the majority of college applicants. So you will be in good shape when it's time to apply to college.
