    It would be impossible to speculate anything at this stage. My quickest assessment has been 10 minutes and my longest was over an hour and been successful everytime, so the length of time the assessment took really doesn't mean anything at all.
    Timescales for decision's is between 2-12 weeks.

    Welcome @chickenbaby

    It's great to have you on the community with us all. How are you today?

    I understand that you might feel as though the assessment didn't go as well as it should have, considering the length of time. However, as our other members have shared, a longer assessment does not necessarily mean a successful one. So please be reassured that the outcome could still be very positive for you :)

    I will move your comment into our PIP/DLA/AA category, where it will hopefully gain more attention, and other members can share their experiences with you too. 

    I hope the PIP outcome is successful and please keep us updated on how it goes :)
