Second application for pip

So I applied for pip back in oct 2021 after being only awarded 2 points and no success in MR I went for a appeal, my appeal gave me about 6 more points but 4 in mobility and 4 in daily living ( my condition worsened from filling form to the appeal, but I don’t think they took that into account at appeal)


I have now reapplied and just had my assessment yesterday, the assessor was nicer than the one I had last time who came across very rude and after seeing the report it differed a lot to what I said. 

I’m soooo anxious as to what the outcome will be this time as I know the success rate is very low

    For any MR and Tribunal they don't take into consideration a worsening of condition. Once the report is returned to DWP a decision can take anything up to 12 weeks.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    It isn’t very low (although it is below 40%).
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.
