    Yes, just give them a call and let them know you would like a copy.

    Hi there 

    Yes you can request a copy it isn't the decision but assessors recommendation 

    You can work out recommended award by adding up dots next to descriptors 

    I'm most cases the dm will go with report but not in all cases

    It's a double edged sword really...getting a copy of the report that is, if it's good news you will spend 2 months hoping the DM goes with the report, if its bad news you will spend 2 months hoping the DM doesn't go with the report.
    In other words either way it's not a win win situation.
    Be extra nice to new members.
