How the test works

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

Last Monday I participated in a karate competition. I am a green belt with several years of experience and was interested in participating in a tournament. I have to say it was very exciting and that my opponents were very good. All the events were fairly difficult and you had to be in good shape to win and proceed to the next round. I almost lost in one of them because I fell to the floor, but in the end I got up and I came third!

Getting that for you now...
