Boy, 11, gets higher IQ test score than Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking


· 每日跟讀單元 Daily English

An 11-year-old Indian-origin boy in the UK has gained a score of 162 on a Mensa IQ test, two points higher than geniuses Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking, making him one of the brainiest children in the country.


Arnav Sharma, from Reading town in southern England, passed the infamously difficult test a few weeks ago with zero preparation and had never seen what a typical paper looked like before taking it.


Arnav insisted he was not anxious before sitting for the test, saying "I had no preparation at all for the exam but I was not nervous. My family was surprised but they were also very happy when I told them about the result."


Mensa is one of the most exclusive clubs in the world, as the only way to join is to prove your IQ is in the top two per cent of the nation. There are currently 20,000 members in Mensa and only 1,500 are under the age of 18.
