We can make changes to shape/layout of reinforcement, specified surcharge, and predicted uplift capacity. Do we get points deducted for these changes and if so how much? Also, if we make changes should we adjust our report and resubmit?

You will get maximum deductions as per Items 4.2, 6.1, and/or 6.2 specified in the revised rubric. If you make changes, you are NOT required to revise and resubmit the report. Revised report(s), if submitted, will NOT be graded.
