How the test works

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

How important it is to have a positive attitude! I had a bad day at work yesterday but I decided to think of something else. I went to the gym and I dumped all my negative energy there. It was a very wise decision. I think that thinking positively helps to relativise problems. After doing sport, I was happier and I was able to sleep well. What do you do if you have a bad day?
