Meet the 12-year-old with IQ higher than Einstein and Stephen Hawking.
A 12 year old school girl in Liverpool, England has a higher IQ score than Albert Einstein. She scored 162, which is two points higher than that of the famed German physicist, and Professor Stephen Hawking. She is now ranked in the top one percent in the world for intelligence.
She has been accepted into the network of geniuses from around the world called Mensa, and her teachers have decided to assign her more homework.
After excelling in an after school study program, one of her teachers let the students take the 90 minute Mensa test, which calculates intelligence.
Her school’s Principal Kay Askew said: "The success of the Mensa enrichment club shows how with the right support, students can excel and become the best in the world." The young girl is focusing on acting and reportedly memorized her lines for her part in a rendition of Shakespeare’s Macbeth in 24 hours.
