Are there any specific instructions for the test?+

The test should be edited using the “Track Changes” feature of MS Word. The sample is not entirely representative of the work you will receive; it is targeted at skill assessment only. The sample itself will be an excerpt from a manuscript authored by non-native English-speaking researchers, intended for an international audience. Therefore, apart from the usual revisions pertaining to language, 
grammar, punctuation, and academic writing style, it may warrant sentence reconstruction and content changes to varying degrees. Please feel free to use supporting comments/notes to explain extensive changes and content enhancements, if any, and/or to clarify ambiguities.

Do I need any specific software to take this test?+

No, all you need is Microsoft Word.
