From a reader:
I saw the claim going around that ChatGPT scored 1050 on the SAT,
This text-based bot had major problems dealing with graphical questions.
so I wondered what its score would be if the old analogy section was included.
My half-hearted attempt to answer this question suggests it would score close to the ceiling even on the Miller’s Analogy Test (160+ IQ equivalent ceiling). I didn’t find any questions online that ChatGPT couldn’t answer correctly while explaining its reasoning. Sandpaper : Abrasive :: Emollient : are answered and explained perfectly.
I created some of my own questions that were similar to those online but about subjects unlikely to appear on the MAT/SAT practice tests to make sure it wasn’t regurgitating its training data, but it still answered all of my questions correctly.
I’ve included a screenshot to give you an idea of its output in case you’d like to investigate more thoroughly.
