    Good question, maybe the information you sent with your application dose not give a true representation to the acessment report or there is staff shortage, or the person who is dealing with your case is, has gone on holiday or I'll any number of thinhd, must be a worry having read the report. If you feel the report is inacuratei you now have time to prepare for a MR siting three examples of why you think or believe the report is wrong for each of the descriptiors..you will have 30 days to make your appeal in writing once you have received the award notification letter.
