 11-year-old British prodigy's IQ is higher than that of Einstein and Hawking

Jusuf Shah, just 11 years old, has surpassed Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking by scoring the highest score imaginable on the Mensa IQ test – 162, while Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking had an IQ of about 160.

The boy is in sixth grade at Wigton Moor Primary School in Leeds, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post. Yusuf Shah's family decided that the child would study for the test at the same time as preparing for high school. For the test, Yusuf Shah had to answer 15 questions in three minutes, which he did brilliantly.

“I still tell him that “your dad is still smarter than you”– notes Yusuf's father, Irfan. “We are calm about everything. Even if you are talented, you must be the most hardworking”.
