    @Candyheart, hello and welcome, now that you're assessment has been completed there is nothing stopping you from contacting the DWP and requesting a copy of the assessment report and on receiving it you can workout what you're award may should be but you still have to wait for the official award confirmation letter which can take up to 8 weeks depending on the back log in your area.

    If you live in the UK they do send the report out before a decision's been made. I've had a copy of each of my reports before a decisions been made. Ring again and speak to someone different and they'll most likely agree to send it.

    If you live in Northern Ireland then they won't send the report until the decision's been made.

    I got told no twice,  with the reason being " it's under scrutiny and subject to change " So I called a third time and they sent it out. You're entitled to a copy so call again :) 

    As for waiting times I've no idea. I applied 12th august , had f2f 27th November and still no decision.
