    Hi @Dave1meir - Welcome to the community. Have you added up the points at the end of the assessor's report to see what you may be awarded? I hope it's what you expected. I imagine everything is taking longer due to the Coronovirus pandemic. Hopefully it won't be too much longer until you get your decision letter; all you can do is wait.

    Hi @Dave1meir, it is rare that they go against the report. I hope you don't have to wait too much longer!
