hi guys 

I have received my assessment in the post today after requesting a copy of it last week. I have scored 0 on a lot of the answers which I am planning on appealing however I scored some points so I was just wondering if anyone knew if on this basis I would be accepted. I will list my scores below for the sections I have scored points on and any advice / help would be appreciated 

Engaging with others face to face - B
Planning and following journeys - D

on all of the other sections the answer was A 

thanks in advance

    You need at least 8 points for a standard award or at least 12 points for Enhanced. Daily living and mobility are added separately.

    Based on those descriptors you mentioned that would be 2 points for daily living, which indicates no award. 10 points for mobility which indicates standard award. 

    You will need to wait for the decision before you can request the MR. 
    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.
