The 11-year-old British scored the highest IQ score


A Leeds, England schoolboy scored the highest possible score in a Mensa test – beating Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking.

Reportedly, Yusuf Shah, 11, recorded a score of 162 – the highest for under-18s and in the highest percentage of all.

Hawking is said to have had an IQ of 160, and even Einstein, who, although he never officially took the test, is believed to have reached the same figure.

Yusuf said his friends at school always tell him he is very smart – and he wanted to test himself by taking the IQ test.

To test the feat, Yusuf went to Nanto for a meal with his parents and two younger brothers Zaki and Khalid.

Sixth-grader Yusuf hopes to study maths at Cambridge or Oxford and said he enjoys doing anything that stimulates his brain.
