My boyfriend has been accepted to university and is now being asked for certificates to prove his grades. He had his official BTEC certificates for college but was never told that he he needed certificates for GCSEs. His school never informed that these where a thing. Would the university accept the sheet he was given on results day as proof of grades?

You can try the results sheet but be prepared for them to not accept it as they don't look very official. I would say that you do need the original certificates from GCSE. You should contact the exams officer from his school where he sat his GCSEs. Some schools post you the certificates but others keep them for you to collect. Hope this helps!

Being serious, he can use the report generated from his Personal Learning Record, which can stand in lieu of certificates. More info, and how to apply for it,is here:

"but was never told that he needed certificates for GCSEs" - bit difficult to believe that he was unaware of the existence of GCSE certificates, but
"Would the university accept the sheet he was given on results day as proof of grades?" almost definitely NO, he can ask his school exams office if they still have his certificates (they are not required to keep them this long and may have destroyed them if they could not store them securely). If they don't he can get replacements from his examiners - check on their web sites for details of how to request them and the fees he will need to pay.

Yes in fact he wasn’t aware that these certificates where even a thing, didn’t know they existed,he wasn’t told as his school didn’t give him the information needed hence why I am asking on here for him

I appreciate the help but when I am stressed I do not appreciate the unhelpful sarcastic comments
