Unfortunately, a fail item this time.
Which suggests inspector being finicky or that the damage has spread into the driver's view.
Or it's new damage.
If the first, people like autoglass would likely fix and doubt the inspector would argue.... though over 10mm diameter in driver's view they should not fix.
But we haven't seen so can only surmise.

As said earlier, check insurance. Many include windscreen cover and as such, a repair would be free (to you) and carry no damage to No Claims.
Even a replacement screen may be outside No Claims or have no impact.
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
