Hi Karen

The descriptor applies to (at least) two sequential actions. If you can't carry out one action this automatically means that you can't carry out two actions.

It's not possible to judge how many points your husband should score without knowing him (even then it would be a guess) but only 15 points are required to enter the WRAG and anything above that is academic.

Good luck with the appeal.

Yes, that is the current version.
