I am half Japanese and have been speaking the language to a relatively fluent level at home (enough for a general conversation with native speakers) and have been to a Japanese high school for a term I'm looking to teach myself the A-level course for Japanese from next year and was wondering if someone could direct me towards some helpful resources? I also wanted to do the JLPT N1 test at some point. Does anyone know how difficult that is compared to the A-level?

I am not remotely Japanese, but I am looking for something similiar myself.

According to Leicester uni, N1 is above A Level and about to enter uni level proficiency: https://le.ac.uk/languages-at-leices.../test-n1-n2-n3. This should equate to Japan's secondary school level of proficiency/their version of GCSE Japanese Language.

In terms of resources, I haven't found anything in particular that would help at A Level. Currently, my main sources for learning is Duolingo and a bunch of textbooks I've bought a while back. There are specialist courses out there that help you reach N1 level of proficiency, without the £9k price tag you get at uni, but you will have to shop around.
