Twelve-year-old Barnaby Swinburne, a student from Bristol, England, scored 162 on an IQ test he received as a Christmas present from his parents. His score gained him admission to Mensa, the High IQ Society, surpassing even Albert Einstein, whose IQ was believed to be 160.
Mensa accepts members with IQs in the top 2% of the world's population, and in both tests he scored in the top 1% and top 4% of the world's population respectively, the highest possible score for a child.
Mensa takes two tests, one with images and TV shows and the second with multiple languages, and uses the highest result.
Barnaby Swinburne, 12, who loves math and chemistry, is studying university courses and plans to go to Oxford University to become a programmer.
