clay says in this article:
４級 yon kyuu
I cannot speak from experience about 4級 but I have heard that people who have only studied Japanese even a few months can pass it. Most JETs [foreigners hired to assist Japanese English teachers in schools in Japan] come to Japan in July. It is very possible to start studying in July and pass the test in December. It will take work, but it can be done. The first 100 kanji can be learned relatively easily + hiragana + very basic grammar.

Possible, yes, but that _really_ depends on how much time you'll use on _only_ japanese studies.
Hey he did say JLPT _4_, so I reckon he's got a fair chance.
Now why anybody should want to take JLPT 4 is another question.
