Hi, my story is kind of the same, i wanted to do punjabi GCSE but my school did not do it, I chose my subjects according to how many subjects my school wanted us to do, I did 10 subjects in school, and if you talk about punjabi then it had no link with my school, that was a subject which i would practise in the weekend, I took my GCSE Punjabi in Year 10 as a private candidate.

A lot of my friends went to this school for 2 hours on Sundays to learn GCSE Punjabi, but I did not need to do that as I already knew everything, one of my friend took his GCSE Punjabi in Year 9! In fact 3 of my friends did theirs in Year 9, as it is possible but the only downside to all this is that you have to pay for it!

I can remember how much I payed but I think it was around 60 pounds, If I talk about Chinese then I am 100 percent sure you can take the GCSE but you just have to do some research and contact a examboard on taking it as a GCSE as a private canditate

I highly recommend you contact AQA, if you do not know what AQA is then, it is a examboard which you take your GCSEs in.

Search up on google, AQA GCSE past papers then there is a option for a Chinese paper and you can check it out, if you are confident you know everything and like how AQA structure their questions, then I would advice you to try contact them for more information on how to do your GCSE but they may charge you.

If you want to learn more then go to a private centre which is obviously going to cost you a lot for tuition fees and I would not really recommend that, if you are really bad at Chinese then you will probably go to private centre.

Get an app called Duolingo and try searching for online Chinese websites and you can practise it in this way!

Hope this helps, any questions feel free to ask
