Has anyone had extra points from the decision maker?

I know that nearly always the decision maker goes with the medical assessor's report when making a decision. However, has anyone else actually had the decision maker add points increasing what was written in the medical report?

I have had the decision and have been awarded 2 more points to the care element than what was on my medical report. 
I will still be putting in an MR as its mobility that I disagree with not actually care.
