I did my entire Spanish GCSE on Duolingo. I was doing French GCSE in class so I had a huge advantage with the grammar, but I imagine it's easily possible to do without it. I would just work diligently through the Duolingo course, researching the grammar as you do (as Duolingo isn't always the clearest in this regard) then buy a revision guide to fill in any gaps for the specific topics, notably vocabulary and to top up and perfect your grammar. This may take a few months, possibly just shy of a year, but after that you should be in a good place to sit the exam, though a few lessons with an online tutor to master exam technique may help if you want to ensure a higher grade. (A good grip of the grammar and knowing the vocabulary though should easily be enough to get a very strong pass and higher).

Also, if it is UCL, as I suspect it is, I think they do offer the ability to fulfil the language criteria during your course.

"UK students who do not have a GCSE grade 5 (or grade C) or equivalent in a foreign language (other than Ancient Greek, Biblical Hebrew or Latin) on admission to UCL will be required to acquire an equivalent level of language proficiency once they are enrolled with us." - https://www.ucl.ac.uk/prospective-st...ed%20with%20us.
