In brief: Not likely
Grand mal or generalized tonic clonic seizures are episodes when folks "lose consciousness" followed by generalized body stiffening (tonic phase).

In brief: By definition, no:
If there is no loss of consciousness, it is called a partial seizure rather than a "generalized tonic-clonic" - or grand mal.
