PIP assessment result gone from high to zero points

I have just received PIP assessment result and have gone from High mobilty to zero. As with others the ex nusre did not want to see the files a friend had collated and just ticked her form.
At the end she said that she could see that I was in considerable pain and short of breath so would not ask me to do any of the mobilty tests. I knew this was important so asked her to note that I was willing to give it a go regardless of future pain. The assessment has come back with 2  points and says that I refused the test. Help - I feel so low and dont know how to go on

    Hello @shygirltina and welcome to the community.

    Any evidence should have been sent with the PIP form, the assessor has a job to do within a limited time and generally will not look at additional papers.

    Have you received a copy of the report? You will need to request a mandatory reconsideration, the letter you received should tell you how to do this and by when. Personally I would concentrate on the criteria and why you disagree with the report and definately mention you did not refuse to do the test. If you have additional relevant evidence to support your claim this should be sent in for the MR.

    If you wish to complain about the assessor you have the right to do so, and there is help on the forum on how to go about this, as well as with requesting the mandatory reconsideration.

    You are not alone going through this, and where the mandatory reconsideration fails for those who go on to appeal the success rate is high.

    As an individual I stood alone.
    As a member of a group I did things.
    As part of a community I helped to create change!

    Hi @shygirltina and a very warm welcome to the community! I am really sorry to hear about this. Many of the community members have gone through a similar situation so I hope they can offer support and guidance about this. Have you thought about appealing your decision. It is possible for you to take your claim to Mandatory Reconsideration to have it looked over again. Information on the Scope website about this can be found here. If there is anything else that I can do then please do not hesitate to be in touch!
