Pip. I haven't had a text to say they've received the report. Should I be worried?

Hello everybody,
Just a little anxious. I had my face to face assessment on the 31st May. I have no text to say they have received it and when I called they said it isn't on the system. Should I be worried, my anxiety is through the roof of the thought of them losing my assessment report as I am not in a rush to do that again. Has anyone else found this please?

    The report may be going through internal audit at the assessors.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.
