Tera Sharifi, a student at Aylesbury High School recently took the Mensa IQ test in Oxford where she well scored above the “genius benchmark” of 140.
The 11 year old student scored 162 points on the test which is two points ahead of Einstein, a theoretical physicist who is considered one of the two pillars of modern physics, and famous cosmologist Professor Stephen Hawking.
The Mensa IQ Test which needed to be answered within a set time focused on the student’s ability to understand the meaning of words.
“I was shocked when I got the result- I never expected to get such a score,” Sharifi said.
With the score she received, Sharifi now qualifies for the Mensa membership, which is also known as the High IQ Society.
“It was a joint decision between me and my parents to take the test,” said the girl.
It will be a wonderful opportunity to meet other people within the Mensa System,” she added.
