Another Indian-origin girl beats Einstein in IQ
London: It seems Indian-origin girls in the United Kingdom are giving a tough competition to the likes of physicist Stephen Hawking, Microsoft founder Bill Gates and scientist Albert Einstein, who are all thought to have an IQ of 160.
After 12-year-old Indian-origin girl Neha Ramu stunned everyone by scoring an incredible 162 on a Mensa IQ test, another girl has achieved a similar feat.
Pooja Ranade, 12, a student of the Royal Latin School, Buckinghamshire, UK, has also scored 162 in the Cattell III B scale in the British Mensa. This is the highest possible score for her age.
Pooja, the daughter of Jitendra and Arti Ranade who originally hail from India, also has a keen interest in baking and sports - badminton, netball and basketball being her favourites. She also plays for her school’s badminton team.
"Pooja`s Mensa result came as a surprise to us. Now we hope that this score encourages her to concentrate more on her studies and achieve further heights," said her parents.
Pooja’s father Jitendra Ranade is working with an IT company since moving to the UK in 2007, while her mother, Arti, is a housewife.
The score puts Pooja in the top one percent of brightest people in the UK and means she is more intelligent than Hawking, Bill Gates and Albert Einstein.
Einstein never took an IQ test as none of the modern intelligence tests existed when he was alive, but experts believe he had an IQ of around 160.
