    Hello and welcome, you should know your outcome from your acessment in 6 to 8 weeks after the acessment. Have you requested a copy of your acessment report, this can take up to 14 days to arrive one requested but people have had theirs with in a week. On receiving your report you can work out what your award may, should be by looking at the rear of the report and matching the points awarded against each of the descriptors. But you still have to wait for the official award letter notification.

    There's no time scales to decisions. If your assessment report was sent to audit then this can delay the decision. As advised, ring for a copy of the assessment report.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
