I'm rather stupid. I chose IT Diploma over additional/triple science when I had to decide on my GCSEs so I ended up doing only core science GCSE. I want to do computer science in the future and physics will benefit me but colleges want atleast additional or physics GCSE too. Should I ask the college if they can make an exception for me or did I miss out so much that I'd just end up doing badly on it?
I'm not an exceptional student but since the college only want C for core and additional and I get mostly A's maybe I'd be able to handle it? Core science was really easy and felt like stuff I covered years back. I'm taking maths and further maths for A levels which will be beneficial towards physics if I chose it, if not I'd do economics instead.

You can ask them to make an exception but it is unlikely that they will.

Ask them to make an exception because if you're getting such good grades I think that's pretty demonstrative of your commitment and ability.
I did core science at GCSE and I'm doing Physics and chemistry and getting As so I wouldn't worry about your capability if you're getting good As in core science
And if they don't let you in then pick another college - pick the subjects you enjoy, not the ones you just 'end up' doing, or you'll get nowhere with A levels
