We may never know his real skills in literature, but no one has the shadow of a doubt that Jean* is very gifted when it comes to artificial intelligence. The secondary school student from Zurich obtained the highest mark of his class in an oral exam on the first part of the play Faust, written by Goethe. Only, the young man never read, with a bit of real attention, a single passage from the book, leaving the said task to ChatGPT: “I still got a six,” he rejoices to the “NZZ “.

To achieve this “feat”, the student purchased a subscription for said software to be able to download PDFs. He then transmitted the original texts as well as secondary sources. The student only had to ask ChatGPT to play a German teacher who knows the work of Faust particularly well and to explain in detail the plot, the characters, the linguistic processes used, the author biography, etc. “I asked him that at the end of the conversation, I should talk about the book as if I had read it,” he explains. A successful bet for the Zurich student who repeated his process for other exams, his worst grade amounting to a five out of six.
