Hello I just want to let people know my experience with my tribunal hearing, I ended up being awarded standard rate of daily living and mobility when I first applied I was given with 0 points for everything , it has been a long draining 18 months wait for this outcome and I’m really happy I’m able to move forward now the judge was really understanding and listened I was really nervous as I suffer from really bad anxiety but was able to get through it and told me  the answer within 10 minutes of my hearing 
if your going through a tribunal please don’t have anything to worry about as they are there to help
