    The time taken is no indication, however next Monday you can tele PIP and ask them to send you a copy of the assessment (PA4), this should give you an idea of the award being recommended.
    I will now only offer benefits advice on PIP, and specific benefits advice for other people with Epilepsy.

    @tonyuka11, now you have had your assessment you can contact DWP and request a copy of your assessment report and on receiving it you will be able to workout what your award may should be but you still have to wait for the award notification letter. Having the report allows you to read and see where and why you where given, awarded points or not awarded. If the award is not what you expected as the decision makers go mostly by the assessment report to make an award you will have time to prepare an MR, collect supporting information, evidence to submit your MR should you need or wish to do so.
