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

Arnav Sharma, from Reading 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. His marks in the exam, which primarily measures verbal reasoning ability, puts him in the top one per cent of the nation in terms of IQ level, The Independent said.
