What it needs is more feedback and discussions after the AM stage. I
can only tell from personal experience so this is from a sample of 1.

At the AM stage everything was perfectly fine. No doubts, no problems,
nothing. And then *WAM* rejected. Several issues raised by the DAM
should have put me back into T&S or P&P or should have beend discussed
directly so they could be resolved.

This way the DAM thinks he is right, I think I am and nothing will
have changed when i reapply next year.
