Mandatory Reconsideration

I sent my MR letter this week, along with the care plan from social care. The care plan is not active, but I can get it so any time. I could not afford my contribution towards it. .I have recently been told I would probably qualify for funding from Continuing healthcare so I aim to try to do that.
I told the min the letter if the only way I could prove my case was to get the plan active, I would do that since I would not now have to contribute anything.
Along with it, I sent the care plan and on two of the criteria for personal care, in the plan, it stated I could not do those things and it was putting me at risk.
I'm wondering if the brilliant minds at the DWP can ignore that and insist I can? I actually don't do either because I can't.  I improvise. It's very rare I have a hot meal. I do a few times per month be getting a take away delivered. I scored seven points from the assessment. There were so many inaccuracies in the report it was beyond belief. But it didn't seem malicious if you know what I mean. Having rare diseases meant she was very ignorant of my conditions.
I gave it them in black and white from social care that I cannot do those things,(the two things alone give me 24 points) so is there any way they can dismiss or ignore that? And still hold to that I can?
