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 have been an astronaut for 7 years and I love living on the International Space Station. Every morning, I get up at half past six. I have breakfast and brush my teeth. Then I do research tasks, I help in the maintenance of the space station and I also take many photos of the landscapes. At 2 I have dehydrated foods for lunch and later I do a couple of hours of sport to counteract the effects of weightlessness. Finally, at around 7 in the evening we have meetings to wrap up the day and the rest of the time free for our business.
