I have a PIP Face-to-Face Assessment tomorrow.  Is the interview as unfair as all the comments I've read recently are stating?  However, after spending hours reading all these negative reviews, I realised that they were all written back in 2014!  Are things even worse now than they were then?  I'm really scared and was hoping for any tips and advice to help me through it.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi mari and welcome

    Sorry I missed this and it is probably to late now. I hope that your assessment went well and was one of the many positive ones.

    Thank you CR.  It was very nerve-wracking as I expected but I'm just glad it's done and out of the way until the decision is made.  I'll deal with that part when it arrives!  It's hard to tell how it went, as most of the assessors are probably trained to keep a poker face regardless!  Fingers crossed and I'll keep you updated as the saga unfolds.  :-)

    Give it a couple of days and request a copy of the assessment report
