How the test works

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

My name is Élodie, and I'm a lawyer. I love my job, because I can help women in need. My clients need support, and I always listen to their stories first. I believe in justice and I'm proud to be useful. I find my job exciting but it's also very tiring. I often work in the evening to build my cases. But it is so rewarding!
