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 could have happened for my train to arrive so late? It should have arrived an hour ago, but it hasn't and they aren't giving us much information at the station. I'm so furious! I would have to be on my way to Madrid for a job interview but it is obvious that I will not arrive on time. When I arrive in Madrid, I will fill in a complaint form and I will ask them to refund my ticket. However, what matters most to me is that the interview company be understanding and that they let me do it another time. I'm so stupidly stressed out!

Clever stuff underway!
