13-Year-Old Girl With 162 IQ Loves Reading, Chess

Neha Ramu is a 13-year-old genius. The west London girl recently scored a 162 on her IQ test.

The 13-year-old’s 162 IQ has caused many people to compare her to people like Stephen Hawking and Albert Einstein but Ramu doesn’t believe that the comparisons are fair.

Ramu said: “When I found out I got such a high score it was so amazing and unexpected. Stephen Hawking, Albert Einstein, they’ve achieved so much. It’s not right to compare me to them just because of my IQ. If I don’t put in my effort and make use of my IQ then there’s no point in having it.”

The BBC reports that 162 is the highest score that a person under 18 can achieve. Stephen Hawking has never publicly disclosed his IQ score the Daily Mail estimates that his score is about 160.

The 13-year-old said that she loves to play chess and read but she also enjoys watching TV and swimming.

Joining Mensa at age 13 is certainly an accomplishment but Ramu isn’t the youngest person to join the genius club. Alice Amos scored a 162 when she was 2-years-old and 11 months. She was officially accepted into Mensa a few weeks later just past her 3rd birthday.
