    My advice would be call DWP and ask for a copy of your assessment.  They’ll send now before award.  You can then use report and internet to see what that report awards points wise.  

    It will importantly give you time to obtain evidence and proof from experts your medical records family friends carers etc in order to put in a strong MR should you need to do so as you only have 28 days to put one in once award us made.   Good luck.  

    Did this myself awaiting decision from assessment 27/9.
