A 12-year-old Indian-origin girl in England, has secured an incredible 162 in the British Mensa IQ Test. She has secured two points higher than geniuses Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking and she has been invited to join the coveted society as a member.
Rajgauri Pawar, reportedly appeared in the British Mensa IQ Test in Manchester last month, and secured 162 the highest possible IQ for someone under the age of 18.
With the ‘genius’ benchmark set at 140, Ms Pawar of Cheshire county, is among the one percent of those who sit the Mensa test and achieve the maximum score.
Mensa said that she is one of only 20,000 people to achieve this score worldwide.
In a report, Ms Pawar was quoted saying, “I was a little nervous before the test but it was fine and I’m really pleased to have done so well.”
“This wouldn’t have been possible without the efforts of her teachers and the support which my daughter enjoys every day at school,” said Pawar’s father Dr Surajkumar Pawar in a report.
