How the test works

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

I've always had a passion for the stars. This is not surprising, because my father is an astronaut. When I was little, we used to go out in the garden and he would teach me the names of the constellations. I knew them by heart! When he was on a mission, I used to follow his journey on a map, and I used to build models of his rocket. I dreamt of leaving with him! And now, I'm studying aeronautics to be able to fulfil my dream one day.

Getting that for you now...
