I want to go into computer science/IT but my school doesn't offer gcse computing. Would I still be able to do it at college without a gcse in it or would it be very difficult to do so.

some may but for university they find maths more important than computing to get into degree of computer science

Almost definitely! A-level computer science courses are designed to be accessible to those who haven't studied the subject at GCSE since it is rare for it to be offered by schools a lot of the time. Double check with the colleges/sixth forms you're interested in, though! Many people progress on to computer science at university without ever having studied it before, so even if your college won't let you take it, you'll still be able to pursue it in the future

you have to check the college requirements but most likely yes(provided you have high enough results in maths and possibly some other things). Even then don't overlook the opportunity as you can normally do a computing degree without A-level computing
