    Hi @jgardier72
    How long ago did you have the assessment? There sadly isn't any timescale for decisions and I'd advise not reading too much into what your assessor said. It's not actually their job to make the decision, they make a recommendation to a decision maker. It is rare for them to go against the recommendation but it can and does happen.

    HI and welcome,

    I agree with Adrian here. The HCP should not have said anything to you and it annoys me when they say things like that. You should take it with a pinch of salt. At the moment you can't speculate anything. Hopefully you won't be waiting too long for a decision but once it's made the letter will be uploaded onto your journal. Good luck.
