Can I still apply for UCs? Do I fulfil the foreign language requirements?

I am freaking out right now. My freshman year of high school, I took Japanese 3. I planned to continue with the language all throughout high school but it conflicted with my schedule so I took another language my sophomore year, Spanish 1.

I did NOT take Japanese 1 or 2 in middle school, I simply took a placement test to be able to take Japanese 3 as a freshman.

My high school counselor told me that taking Japanese 3 counted as 3 years to UCs -- does it? Do I still fulfil the language requirement for UCs (taking the same foreign language for 2 years)?

At this point, I can't take an AP/SAT Subject test for the language because my Japanese skills have mostly been lost.

Any insight is greatly appreciated.

    Yes, you fulfill the Foreign language requirement. You need to reach Level 2 of any language to meet that requirement. Since you completed level 3 Japanese, you are fine.

    @islandgirl9: You might want to note in the comment section of the UC application, that you tested out of Japanese 1 and 2 for clarification.
