Lady from pip called

Lovely lady called from pip to confirm tomorrow. I didn’t answer the first time because I don’t answer unknown calls. Googled the number, said it was pip. I’m thinking oh for godsake what have I done. So called the number. No answer, she called back. She just said a woman called molly is ringing me about pip tomorrow. I feel sick and it’s not even tomorrow. I’ve been waiting over 3 month for this and now it’s here I’m absolutely bricking it. I hope I’m not alone with this

    You’ll be absolutely fine @idontlikeliving. Make sure you have everything that you need beforehand, any notes to remind you, a copy of your pip form (to refer back too) Just answer questions, but don’t just reply with yes or no. If you’re on a mobile, charge it fully!
    I know how nerve wracking it is, take deep breaths (even during the call if necessary) to calm yourself. I’m sure the assessor will be very understanding.
    Good luck. Let us know how it goes.
