A 10-year-old boy in the UK has beaten Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking in the Mensa IQ test.

The Mensa IQ Test have always had the reputation of being the most elite IQ test in the world, and only a select few — 1% of the global population to be exact — are fortunate enough to be a part of Mensa; the largest and oldest high IQ society in the world.

There are currently 20,000 members in Mensa and only 1500 are under the age of 18.

Mehul Garg, an Indian-origin boy, secured the highest score of 162 in the test beating Stephen Hawking, and Albert Einstein; two of the most exceptional scientists the world has ever known. Einstein and Hawking both have a score of 160.

In his family, Mehul or Mahi is not the only one who has a ‘genius’ brain. Apparently, his 13-year-old brother, Dhruv, also earned a maximum score of 162 a year ago.

“Mahi is fiercely competitive. His older brother had achieved the same score last year so he really wanted to prove that he is no less intelligent than his brother,” Divya Garg told news agency PTI.

Mehul is also working towards his participation in the ‘Child Genius 2018‘ show on Channel 4 after being shortlisted among the top 100 candidates for this year.

Meanwhile, Child Genius is inviting kids between 7 and 12 to take part in a competition series  which puts forward  those with extraordinary capabilities.
