    @elmo67, morning and welcome, once you have had your f2f wait a week then phone DWP and ask for a copy of your report, this takes about 14 days to arrive once requested. On reading the report you will be able to work out what your award is most likely to be. But you still have to wait for the official award letter to arrive, which can be up to 8 weeks or longer depending where you live. But if the report does not look good you will have time to sort out and prepare for an MR or appeal way before the official award letter arrives. You will be able to pick out all the points that you think are inaccurate or falsely recorded in your acessment.
