I wrote mine as if I were a presenter for NASA at a exhibition. So f*ckin satisfied. #EccentricSal
Same, except I wrote an interview with an Astronaut working at NASA.

Hey guys,
For question 1 MCQ, did you guys get option D:Veterinary medicine?

I got the dog's owners. I assumed they meant the owners weren't looking after the dog well (therefore the dog wasn't happy) and so the dog never wagged his tail. He physically could, but didn't want to.

EDIT: for the first writing piece I wrote about a man who was going to coordinate an expedition to Mars. I'm not sure if I did it 'correctly', I feel mine was on the more creative side than informative, although I tried to include majority of the information they gave explicitly.

Some of those questions were really fun! I liked the chemical one and the shape simultaneous equation one.

Whoa, "eccentric" was that a reference to something (possibly a multiple choice question) lol, yeah I did the same I said I was presenting at an event called the "National Space Conference 2019" and I was telling people why they should get excited about Mars exploration for the future.

For the proverb question, did you choose “Delay is the antidote of anger.” I felt that was the odd one out. I can’t remember the question number lol.

No, I did the first one but I reckon i'm wrong, my friend did the delay anger one and that seems more right.

This was a lot tougher than I anticipated Rest breaks helped a bit but it was still killer.

For Text 1 I explained Mars from the perspective of a primary school teacher and text 2 from the perspective of those Las Vegas "I'll make you a millionaire entrepreneur"-ish people about why new ideas are essential to avoid going stagnant lol

If anyone wants to quickly type up their answers I wrote a little crappy Python code just to save myself the hassle:
Code: [Select]
GAT_LENGTH  = 70answers     = []for i in range(GAT_LENGTH):    answers.append(input(str(i + 1) + " - "))for i in range(GAT_LENGTH):    print(str(i + 1) + " - " + (answers[i]))It's not great but it was enough to save me 10 or so minutes

You don't have to write creatively, as long as you didn't present an argument it should be fine.

It was even more simple than that, the doc looked at the dog's owners while conducting on the dog so... You only had to rely on your 10 year old brain (nothing against primary school kids).
