Schoolgirl has higher IQ than Albert Einstein

Report by Sarah Johnston, Video by Sarah Johnston

An 11-year-old girl has recently found out she is one of the smartest people in the UK by achieving the maximum score on a Mensa IQ test.

Primary school pupil Cerys Cooksammy-Parnell said she was not only shocked to have got the top mark, but was also pleased to have beaten her father.

The schoolgirl scored a jaw-dropping 162 on the Cattell B scale, which gives her an IQ higher than scientists Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking.

Cerys, from Northampton, sat the supervised test on July 27 with her 45-year-old father Dean, who is already a member of Mensa and has an IQ of 142.
