Should she have done this?
No, because that part of the process has been dropped. There is no longer a ranking within the recommendation levels. The panel will know that, and the information doesn't really help the panel if there is no context, i.e. the recommendations above and below her, also in order.
If I recall correctly, the Head's manual for this year did originally state that there would be some form of list within the recommendations - I think it was alphabetical. The manual was then reissued a month or so later with all references to any sort of "list" deleted. It has been a confusing business for Heads who are used to the old system.
Does the level given reflect badly on your case? If you prefer to PM me on this question you are welcome to.
