    Possible the assessor looked at the paperwork and decided it was possible to write an assessment report without speaking to you.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    A paper based assessment can only mean a good thing in my opinion. Once a decision's been made a letter will be uploaded onto your journal.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
