How long will it take?

All things being equal, each section would take an hour or two, depending on how quick a thinker and typer you are!

There are five sections, and you can do each section at any time and in any order. You can take as long as you need to complete each section. There is a 'save' option in case you get interrupted. However for safety, if there will be a long break between starting and finishing a section, we advise to you copy your answers into a separate document just in case of IT error!
