Warp News has tested how ChatGPT performs in Swedish vocabulary, reading comprehension, sentence completion, and English reading comprehension on the college entrance exam from the fall of 2022.
The sections tested were 2 and 5. The other sections contain pictures, which ChatGPT cannot see.
Out of a total of 80 questions, ChatGPT answered 73 correctly.
If the chatbot had performed at the same level on the rest of the test, it would have corresponded to a score of 1.9 out of a maximum of 2.0.
ChatGPT had 20 out of 20 correct answers in vocabulary. One example:
It answered one question incorrectly in English reading comprehension.
Research over the past 20 years has finally begun to provide at least a partial explanation for why we must sleep. The clearest finding is that sleep does not serve just a single purpose. Instead it appears to be needed for the optimal functioning of a multitude of biological processes – from the inner workings of the immune system to proper hormonal balance, to emotional and psychiatric health, to learning and memory, to the clearance of toxins from the brain. At the same time, none of these functions fails completely in the absence of sleep. In general, sleep seems to enhance the performance of these systems instead of being absolutely necessary. And yet anyone who lives for months without sleep will die.
Question 38. What is implied here?
A Staying awake for a long time will lead to a collapse of your immune system.
B There is still no satisfactory account of why sleep is necessary for humans to survive.
C Lack of sleep is fatal mainly due to the accumulation of poisonous substances in your brain.
D Clearly most people do not sleep as much as they should in order to function optimally.
ChatGPT answered C, when the correct answer was B.
It answered incorrectly on questions 20 and 38 in section 2, and 19, 20, 29, 38, and 40 in section 5.
It passed all sentence completions except one.
