To graduate, you have to prove that you can type a longer passage at approximately 40 words per minute, with no more than one error.

This typing test is comprised of random sentences from Treasure Island, with some character substutions here and there to fully test your keyboard skills.

This excerpt will be a little longer than you are accustomed to, so make sure you are alert and ready to focus before starting.

Good luck, and you may begin when ready.
