    Hi!
    I want to the Japanese GCSE but I have next to no foundation in the language. I do not know the hiragana, katakana or any kanji whatsoever but I know some random phrases. However, it would mean a lot to be able to do a Japanese GCSE. Is it possible to learn everything I need to know in time for exams?

    Hi would you be self teaching? What is the content of the gcse like?
    I think it would be really hard to do in 1 year but anything is possible. For kana, get the app 'Dr moku' and pay the £1, it's worth it. I learnt hiragana in 1 day from that app (and no I'm not a genius, it's just really good).

    Thanks so much for the help yes I will get that app. I am not sure of the content of the GCSE I have yet to get the correct books. I just wasn't sure if it was possible so I thought I should ask to see if it was possible to learn everything first.
    Thanks again for the help

    1 day? o.O Hiragana took me a week or two... Don't even get me started on katakana :lol:

    it's important of you want to do Japanese gcse to download the specification from the edexcel website. I did a gcse in Japanese in the summer and got an a*. even though I had a tutor for 3 years I relied a lot on learning the gcse straight from the specification.
