A Little British Schoolgirl Got 162 in an IQ Test

Nicole Barr, 12, of Harlow, Essex, got 162 in an IQ test – topping geniuses Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking by two points, – The Mirror reports.

Her mum Dolly Buckland, 34, says she’s extremely proud of her. She said: “She’s a hard, hard working child. She stays after school for homework club and never misses a day. From a young age she’s been picking out mistakes in books and magazines.”

The average adult IQ score is 100, whilst a score above 140 is considered to be that of a genius.
