A 12-year-old girl has beaten Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking in a Mensa IQ test that she described as “easy”.
Lydia Sebastian, from Langham in East Anglia, sat the famous Mensa paper over her school holidays, and was astonished to find she had received the highest possible score on the Mensa IQ test.
As reported by the Colchester Gazette, she said she test was “much easier than I expected it to be”.
Mensa is the oldest intelligence society in the world and membership is restricted to those whose IQ test scores are within the top 2 percent of all results.
The average score on the test is 100, so anyone who gets a score of 132 or higher is eligible for entry.
