11 year old Indian origin kid Arnav Sharma who lives in the outskirts of Reading, surpassed the great Albert Einstein when it comes to Mensa IQ Test as he managed to pull of a breathtaking 162 IQ points in the test conducted recently. He passed this test without any proper preparation and this speaks volumes of the talent this kid is.
Mensa IQ Test is regarded as the toughest exam in the world, which tests a human brain like none other. By preparing for hours and hours will not help you score good marks in these tests, a person should be incredibly intelligent to get over the line in this Test and has to put in all his common sense, in addition to his practice.
But its sensational how Arnav has attempted this exam and surpassed the super intelligent mark with ease. His mark in the exam, which primarily measures verbal reasoning ability, puts him in the top one per cent of the nation in terms of IQ level, The Independent reported.
“The Mensa test is quite hard and not many people pass it so do not expect to pass. I took the exam at the Salvation centre and it took about two and a half hours,” Sharma said as quoted by Indian Express.
An extremely elated Meesha Dhamija Sharma, his mother, said she was nervous and kept her fingers-crossed till the results came out. “I was thinking what is going to happen because you never know and he had never seen what a paper looks like,” she explained.
“At one-and-a-half years old I took him to India for a holiday to see his grandparents, his grandmother told me about him and said Arnav is going to do very well with his studies,” she said.
“He was counting up to more than 100. That was when I stopped teaching him because I came to know that there is no end to his numbers. When asked about whether there was anyone else in the family with an unusually high IQ, she could not recall anyone, adding: “His dad is quite clever as well but not as clever.” She added.
This indeed is spectacular how a young bloke has managed to pull off something so remarkable and our Youth team sends Arnav and his family our best wishes for his bright and shining future.
