    Hello, you must be able to work out what the points you where awarded for in reference to the ESA descriptors.

    Are you talking about the assessment report? aren't you requesting the MR because you were placed into the WRAG but think you should be in the Support Group?

    If you're requesting the MR for the Support Group then it's not about scoring points, it's about satisfying at least one of the support group descriptors or reg 35. At this stage you don't need to know what you scored those points in. You need to concentrate on which one of those descriptors apply to you and base your MR request letter on that.

    I'm sorry but i'm not understanding why you think you need to know what you scored those points in to be placed into the WRAG. It does seem like you have very little understanding of ESA and this isn't going to help your MR/Tribunal process to be placed into the Support Group. As i said many times it's not about scoring points, you don't need to know what points you scored.
