    Yes it’s normal. If an assessment is needed you will be contacted by letter in the post. 

    Most people have assessments so you should expect one. Paper based assessments are rare but possible. 

    The only way you’ll know if you had a paper based assessment is if a decision is made without an assessment. When a decision is made a letter will be uploaded onto your journal. 
    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.

    Hi poppy thank you 

    how long do you think I will be waiting for one? What’s the longest period to wait for an assessment after returning the forms if needed? Thank you

    No problem. I have no idea how long you'll be waiting. I'm sorry but it's impossible to answer that question for the longest wait.

    I wish you good luck this Thursday I’m dreading mine but even just waiting it’s the nerve racking thing aswell! 

    I sent mine off on the 5th so just after yours!

    Thank you :) I think waiting times differs for different areas. Someone on here got an appointment shortly after sending their form off, I got my letter last week so waited 6 weeks roughly for the appointment letter
