How the test works

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

- The first day of school came so fast this year! - Yes, I can't believe that it's tomorrow already! Arthur has been a bit worried for a week. He keeps asking questions, so we're trying to reassure him. Is Mia ready for her first day of school? - Yes, and she seems very impatient. I thought that she would be more stressed, but on the contrary, she's super excited! Yesterday, she was walking around the house with her brand-new rolling schoolbag. She was so cute! - Hopefully, Arthur will feel better tomorrow!

Let me take a look at that...
