    HI and welcome,

    I'm assuming you've received a copy of the assessment report after a recent face to face assessment? If so then they usually go with the recommendations in the report, it's rare to go against it.

    Have you added up any points that may have been recommended in the report?

    Reviews take place 6 months before the award is due to end and not 1 year. You will need to wait for the decision before doing anything else and once a decision's been made then i'd advise you to get some expert advice regarding requesting the MR for the length of time of the award.

    There's nothing you can do until the decision's been made. Put your postcode into this link to see what's local to you.

    Most likely because they think your condition is going to change, which is most likely the reason why they recommend short awards but as i advised, you've not had the decision yet so please wait for that. It has been known for them to go against the decision, even for the length of time recommended.
