    Congratulations on the appeal @Sharon11! I'm not surprised it was a blur, I imagine it was quite intense.

    I hope it doesn't take too long to get the letter. :)

    Hi congratulations on your win I hope you have the result you wanted and you are placed in the appropriate group. 

    According to the internet you need to get 15 points or more to be eligible but the support group depends on which descriptors you scored the points for as to which group you are placed in.

    Sorry this isn't of much help the only sure way is to wait for yur letter
