Which ESA group am I in

Hi I had my tribunal yesterday but it don't say what group I'm going to be in. Can anybody help me please the letter says

1:the appeal is allowed
2:the decision by the secretary of state on 11/12/17 is set aside.
3: Mr Xx had limited capability for work
4: in applying the work capability assesment 18 points where scores from the activities  and descriptors in schedule 2 of the ESA regulation s 2008 made up as follows.

6 points for coping with change
6 points for getting about
6 points for coping with social engagement due to cognitive impairment or mental disorder

5: no schedule 3 descriptors applies regulation 35 of the ESA regulations 2008 did not apply.

By reason of significant anxiety and low mood  Mr Xx is significantly limited in particular in carrying out daily living activities that requires interaction with people he does not know. As a result the above  descriptors are satisfied. In reaching its decision the tribunal placed particular reliance upon the evidence from Mr Xx and his mother.

Any recommendations  given below does not form part of the tribunals decision and is not binding on the secretary of state. 

The tribunal recommendes  that the DWP  does not reassess Mr Xx  within 24 month from today's date.

Does that mean I'm in support group!?
