    You can't re-apply if you already have an award. If you're condition has got worse then you can report a change of circumstances. This is risky because you could lose everything you already have.

    Have you looked at the PIP descriptors to see where you can gain those points for a higher award? If you haven't i'd suggest you do that, there's no point reporting a change of circumstances if you can't gain the extra points needed for a higher award.

    When was your Tribunal?

    Hi @elsabell
    It is possible to take a PIP test online which shows you how many points you would gain. However, this does not class as evidence and does not mean the assessor would give you the same points. Very best of luck with it!
