TOPIC: ESA TEST

ESA TEST 9 years 3 months ago #32735

Hi again.

I took the mock ESA test again as I said I would last week.

I previously took the test and scored 111 points and I have retaken the test and been very strict and scored 78 points.
I'm not sure, when I think about it whether to be happy or not.

I've just done the test and answering the questions accurately, scored 45 points. I only scored 15 points at the ATOS medical.

78 points looks quite promising.

The difficulty with self-testing is that it is a reflection of your views and not how an ATOS doctor might see you, when you are trying to explain your limitations in a WCA medical interview.

Perhaps a good next step, given your high scores is too look at the requirements for the Support Group and see whether you believe you would qualify. This is likely to be a better indicator of how severe and debilitating your conditions are.

The Support Group criteria can be found in the following document.

Hope this helps

I changed the link, as direct links to documents are not allowed on this forum.

Just click on the 'Understanding Employment and Support Allowance' link.
