Is It Possible?

Half of the course is a project anyway, so it involves a lot of independent learning and doing your own research.
It also sounds like you'd be able to ask questions and get help from the teachers in your own school, and that would make it even more possible.

If all else fails you can of course come on here and ask for help, theres plenty people who have done the course before willing to help.

The course is changing this year - so the project is only going to be worth 40% and must be a software development of some kind. However scholar is going to be updating it's materials so you'll still be able to work through it yourself.
In addition to your departments help, there are many here on the HSN community who can help, along with the scholar discussion board for the subject!

It's certainly achievable!

Whilst waiting for Scholar though I have to learn the AI unit from Higher since I studied Multimedia last year but I've got 8 free periods to do it for a few weeks and I could do some during summer hols so I should hopefully be fine!

A lot of stuff from the Computing Programming sub-section in the old Higher is integrated into the software development unit (eg Binary search, queues, stacks etc).
As for AI, you don't really need to know all that much from Higher to understand the AI unit. I would have a quick read over the Higher notes but that would be all. Holmes last year done AI without having done it at Higher. ( I think )

Certainly - I studied AH Computing two years ago, and I didn't have any time in a class. If you're motivated enough, you should be able to work through Scholar yourself.

Yeh, myself and two others learned the course and did our project in our free periods, of course, our teacher was a great help in telling us what to do and by when etc, we could see him if we were stuck anytime.
We met formally with him once a week for a double period.
