    Hi there 

    Sorry gals for us to say without knowing the question or answer ? 

    There are no right or wrong answers its about how your condition affects your ability to do the tasks

    Hello and welcome to the community @gypsycaril

    Not necessarily no, there's the rest of the assessment to consider. It's common to not be overly delighted with the answers you give, or to forget to mention certain points. I wouldn't worry about it too much.

    What was the question, if you don't mind me asking?
