How the test works

Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

One day, I'll be an astronaut. I've always been interested in space: at school, I used to spend my time drawing the Milky Way in my notebooks' margins. Each year, our science teacher asked us to prepare a presentation on a topic that we liked. And every time, I picked the solar system and I built a model of the planets out of papier mâché! At the time, I made myself one promise. The day (when) I climb on board a space shuttle, I'll tell this anecdote to the journalists. Imagine my teacher's face!

Clever stuff happening!
