    Hi,

    Have you added up the recommended points at the back of the report? Use the PIP self test to do this and it will tell you how many points were scored. They usually go with the report but you'll still have to wait for a decision. Once a decision's been made if you're not happy you have 1 month to request the Mandatory Reconsideration.
