How the test works

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

It's my brother's birthday soon, and I want to send him a parcel, so I am going to the post office. I hate going there! Plus, it's crowded today, I have to queue [US: to stand in line]. After twenty-five minutes, I finally get to the counter. I send my parcel, and I also buy a book of stamps and a pack of envelopes to reply to my mail.

Clever stuff happening!
