How the test works

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

What a disappointment! After I tried so hard, I didn't get a high grade (in order) to study at university. I am very sad. That means I have to study more and repeat the exam next year. I am also worried about my parents because they had high expectations. I think that things happen for a reason and that this extra year is going to be useful. We must not lose hope!
