London, August 12: A schoolgirl, from Northampton, has scored the highest marks possible on a Mensa IQ test, which were even higher than those of renowned scientists- Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking.
Cerys Cooksammy-Parnell, 11, was named one of the smartest people in UK after she scored 162 on the Cattell B scale, the Daily Express reported.
Cerys, who is one of the youngest people to have sat for the test as it is only offered to kids aged over 10 and a half, gave the supervised test with her father Dean, who is already a member of Mensa and has an IQ of 142.
She said that her primary aim was to beat her dad, who is very smart, but she didn't expect to beat him by such a huge margin.
Meanwhile, Dean, a lawyer by profession, said that he was a bit blown away. (ANI)
