    Hello @wag and a warm welcome to the community. Good to have you with us, but sorry to hear of your difficulties.
    You need to hear from one of our benefits advisors, I think, so please bear with us and give them a little time to get back to you. It may be tomorrow.
    In the meantime you may also hear from other members who have been through similar situations, who will also bid you welcome.
    Keep in touch,
    Warmest best wishes,
    Richard

    Hi wag and welcome

    It is not possible to speculate on the outcome of any assessment.
    However, it pays to understand the points system, descriptors and criteria for an award
    Have a look at the B&W self test
