    Some where in that report there's boxes with dots/ticks. You need to compare those with the PIP descriptors to see what, if anything was recommended. They don't add up the scores in the report because they're just recommendations.

    Use the PIP self test to compare and it will add up any points you may have.

    They usually go with the report.

    It’s difficult to work out what your award is going to be by the acessment report, but with carful reading and basic maths you can easily work the award recommendation by counting the black dots in the report. But as always having worked out what your award may, should be you still have to wait for the official award letter notification letter.

    Are you sure there's no boxes with dots? They are usually at the end of the report. No functional restriction means they believe you don't have any problems with your daily living.

    The review period recommended doesn't mean anything because they do this whether there's points recommended for an award or not.

    Of course you'll need to wait for the decision and if you're not happy the MR is your first step. Tribunal then if the MR fails.
