    The assessment report is just a recommendation and is part of your evidence, which is used to make a decision. It’s not the actual decision. It has been known for them to go against the report, especially if you have some evidence that contradicts each other. 
    If you’re not happy then you request the MR.

    @martyd85, poppy 123456 is right request an MR and send extra information and evidence with real examples of why the award for mobility was wrong.
