MR - Should I Be Going For Everything?

I am still awaiting my report letter on my PIP claim for  Arthritis. I have a copy of the assessors report and it gives me 6 points for Daily and 0 for Mobility. I feel I should have got 9 points on Daily (because of two missed aids) and 10 for Mobility. I will obviously do a MR once the letter arrives but I have a question. Should I go for both Daily and Mobility? Has anyone ever gone from 0 points to 10 on an MR?  Any advice would be appreciated.

    You should fully explain how your health impacts you and ask for what you consider is the appropriate award. People can go from no award to enhanced awards at MR stage - and if not an appeal to tribunal is available. If the 10 point descriptor is the appropriate descriptor then of course you can go from 0 to 10.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    @hughiemachrins I too had 0 points on both mobility and daily care but after doing MR I went to 8 for daily care and 10 for mobility, this is my second time I have needed to do MR for PIP and both times same result, it took 10 weeks for the result due to back log.

    I've seen several people recently go from 0 points to enhanced both if that helps? I mean its definitely possible if you are entitled to the points for the right descriptors and give examples of how or why you feel you should have more points for them then they will do their job correctly hopefully ??? good luck with it all hun!

    @hughiemachrins, Emilyb81 was right about the point scoring, I went from 0 points at both assessment and MR, and mine had to go all the way to tribunal and I won getting enhanced on both, it can be possible.
