Sorry I have not got to this reply sooner. Various aspects of life have meant when I have the time I dont have the energy/concentration.
There is a lot to read on that link but I will look at it properly soon.

The final version of the assessment criteria for this activity is as follows:
Final activity 12 Moving around
Descriptor
Points
A Can stand and then move more than 200 metres, either aided or unaided. 0
B Can stand and then move more than 50 metres but no more than 200 metres, either aided or unaided. 4
C Can stand and then move unaided more than 20 metres but no more than 50 metres. 8
DCan stand and then move using an aid or appliance more than 20 metres but no more than 50 metres  10
E Can stand and then move more than 1 metre but no more than 20 metres, either aided or unaided.  12
F Cannot, either aided or unaided
(i) stand; or
(ii) move more than 1 metre. 12

all a bit different from the last draft, under that one i scored max points as i could not self propel a wheelchair, now i'm not sure.
