It’s not always a well known fact, but girls often do score higher than their male counterparts on IQ tests. This 12 year old Indian high schooler, however, surpasses even her female counterparts, and geniuses alike.
“A 12-year-old Indian-origin girl in the UK has achieved the highest possible score of 162 on a Mensa IQ test, outwitting physicists Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking.
Lydia Sebastian from Essex has joined the one per cent of all entrants to attain the highest mark in the Cattell III B paper supervised by Mensa, the society for people with high IQs.
Lydia completed the paper with minutes to spare at the sitting at Birkbeck College, London during her school holidays.”
