    HI an welcome.

    You need to look at the dots next to the descriptors that will be somewhere in the report. Compare those against the PIP self test here by copying the dots from the report and putting them into the self test. Once you've done that the test will add up any points you may have scored.

    You'll still need to wait for the decision but they mostly go with the report. There's no timescales to decision's, it depends on backlog in your area. Good luck.
