11-year-old Indian-origin boy scored higher on an IQ test than Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking.

Arnav Sharma, a UK-born Indian-origin boy recently beat the IQ test score of German-born theoretical physicist Einstein and celebrated cosmologist Hawking. According to reports, the so-called genius benchmark is set at 140 and 11-year-old Sharma, scored a whopping 162 – the maximum possible result you can achieve on the paper and two points higher than Einstien and Hawking did in their time.

Academicians around the world were further shocked to find out that the boy passed the infamously difficult test a few weeks back with zero preparation and had never seen what a typical paper looked like before taking it.

“I took the exam at the Salvation centre and it took about two and a half hours,” he recalled. “There were about seven or eight people there. A couple were children but the rest were adults. It was what I thought it would be.”

His family was astounded when they found out about the result.
