    The tighter any doctor evidence is to the criteria.... i.e. the descriptors you feel should apply to you... the better. Good luck!

    Yes I agree.... Decision Makers are seemingly all too often aking only one decision... to copy the assessment report into the format for the award letter. Frustratingly despite provocation and what I thought was an extensive, clever and comprehensive reconsideration request I couldn't jolt the second DM into doing differently. But at least you are preared with report. So I'd sit down and analyse what descriptors should apply to you and therefore whether you should get a better award. If you think you should then consider reconsideration request... focus on descriptors you feel relevant and try to evidence so... and describe in detail your difficulties. If the assessment report conflicts with what you're saying I would probably explain why/how the report is wrong.


    If you do ask for reconsideration and they don't budge... then at least you probably have in place essentially the case you could put to appeal tribunal albeit in challenging the reconsidered decision. Good luck.
