    Yes. He needs to A call the unis and ask about their procedure( I have called each of the uni's I'm applying to dozens of times with questions, it should be easy to reach the admissions team) , and B speak to his school/college to support him when adding it to his application.

    Ask your friend to contact each university he wants to apply to individually (to enquire if they allow mitigating circumstances, explore the options available to him etc).

    His results could not be pubished since they cancelled the test but he did get VR=680 and DM= 710 before he had his seizure and needed to go to A&E
