Received my assessment support, and not sure what it all means. Can I work out rough idea of score?

I received my pip assessment report today and not sure what it all means as it is very confusing, but it does say on every page that that evidence is supportive to that question. 
Should there be any points on the form that I could try and find to get a rough idea of what the outcome may be as I first applied in April and it’s making my nerves go through the roof 
thanks ?

    Hello @Kellyxx

    Welcome to Scope's forum. It is great to see you have joined us. I especially appreciate that you have already managed to reach out to us as I recognise the courage it must take to reach out for the first time. Unfortunately, PIP assessments are not my area of expertise which means I am hoping someone with more knowledge in this area can respond to you soon to help you to understand the report. However, in the meantime, I just wanted to say sorry that the assessment report is not immediately accessible, that must be really frustrating. You may find this link useful as it explains what to do and who you can contact after your assessment https://www.mypipassessment.co.uk/your-assessment/after-your-pip-consultation. I hope this helps! I am wishing you all the best of luck with PIP, I hope you get the outcome you are hoping for and I will look forward to hearing from you again soon  :)

    Hi @Kellyxx - & welcome to the community. With your assessor's report, towards the end you should find a list with all the activities described. For each activity you should see a black dot or a tick alongside it; there will be just one for each activity. Compare this to the following list which shows the points which may be awarded. Remember this is just a recommendation, & you will have to wait for the decision maker's letter. Please see: https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/Global/Migrated_Documents/adviceguide/pip-9-table-of-activities-descriptors-and-points.pdf

    @chiarieds  Well from using that link you gave me it’s showing a total of 10 point for daily living and 24 points for mobility so fingers crossed

    That does sound hopeful @Kellyxx - please let us know how you get on, thank you. :)

    @chiarieds one other thing that I find strange is that on my report they keep referring back to my application in 2019 where I was refused pip, and the assessor says where they didn’t give me any or little point “infact it is not the case and it is such points”
    very confusing as to why she is arguing the point of an assessment made 2 years ago xx
