Supreme Court Ruling - RE: Engaging with others

My PIP award was decided via Tribunal and I’ve been advised that the DWP won’t be reviewing cases that were awarded via this method.. but I fall in to the group that was scored incorrectly as I was awarded 2 points instead of 4 for needing prompting/support to be able to engage with other people. 

What are my options in regards to requesting a review of this as surely the tribunal would have to follow the same guidelines as the DWP and if they were incorrect as deemed so by the Supreme Court then surely the tribunals should also be reviewed? 

I think it’s unfair I lost out on the Daily Living component completely based on this; as my carer also loses out on potential CA or Carers Element too. 

Thanks
