I wanted to know if its possible to take Computer Science AS-Level without me taking it for IGCSE ?
My school didn't offer it but my new school does and I'm really interested in it.

Computer Science degrees require no prior knowledge as they teach you it from the start, so I would assume A Levels would be the same, there wouldn't be much to learn at GCSE that you couldn't teach yourself anyway

My previous school's sixth form allowed you to take A level CS without doing the GCSE (even if it was offered) and my current college also allows you to take A level CS without doing the GCSE.
To be quite honest you could literally teach yourself GCSE computing in a day, it's very basic and straightforward. You should be fine
