Artificial Intelligence is everywhere. It is changing education. Three universities have adopted a new, landmark policy – to allow students to use AI in assessments. Tests will be under strict conditions. A professor said: "Instead of banning students from using such programs, we aim to assist [them]." The Internet is full of AI text generators that can write essays well enough to fool teachers. The essays can even trick anti-plagiarism tools.

Artificial Intelligence could affect exam fairness. It is the biggest change since calculators in maths tests. The latest teachers' dilemma is a language-processing tool called ChatGPT. This can human-like content on any subject in seconds. Teachers worry that students will use it to write essays. Another professor said teachers needed to accept AI. He said: "You cannot stop it. The alternative is the Middle Ages – going to pen and paper."
