How the test works

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

Who is your favorite wise man? Mine is Melchior and so yesterday I wrote him a letter (in order) to ask for my presents. I asked him for a new video game, an adventure book and a 3D puzzle. I think that I've been a very good boy and I also got good grades, so Melchior has to be generous and bring these presents. He is going to have a lot of work delivering presents.

I'll be right with you...
