Tara Sharifi, a student at Aylesbury High School, recently took the Mensa IQ test in Oxford where she scored well above the “genius benchmark” of 140. The 11-year-old student scored 162 points on the test, which is two points ahead of Einstein, a theoretical physicist who is considered as one of the two pillars of modern physics, and famous cosmologist Professor Stephen Hawking.

Updated version of the previous article.

The Mensa IQ test, which needed to be answered within a set time, focused on the student’s ability to understand the meanings of words, according to Iran Front Page.
“I was shocked when I got the result – I never expected to get such a good score,” Sharifi said.

With the score she received, Sharifi now qualifies for the Mensa membership, which is also known as the High IQ society.

“It was a joint decision between me and my parents to take the test,” the girl said. “It will be a wonderful opportunity to meet other people within the Mensa system. I have told some of my friends at school and they were really impressed.”

She also added that when she becomes older, she would pursue “something related to mathematics.” Her father, meanwhile, admitted that he was surprised by the result, but was proud of what his daughter achieved.

“I am extremely proud but very surprised at how well Tara scored,” her father, Hossein, said, Bucks Herald UK reported. “I figured she might do well when we watched TV and she would get maths questions before the contestants. I knew she was very clever but I did not think she would have such a high IQ.”


  1. pourquoi toujours tout detuire l etre humain est condanné

  2. These scores are arbitrary and as useful as the deplorably still widely used BMI... .

  3. Go to any school with more than a few hundred students and you will find students with higher IQs than Stephen Hawking and Albert einstein. Just because your friends with their parents are just because you happen to hear about this one particular student doesn't mean that they're special. Seriously I actually do your f****** research and realize that there are millions of people especially kids who have IQs that high. Stop pretending like it's some amazing thing for someone to have a reasonably high IQ.

    1. Thank you for bringing truth to this redonculous article.

  4. Einstein's IQ around 160... Meaning that you wrote an entire article on the basis of a lie... Lol this means that she's even less impressive than the already not impressive above Einstein IQ because of how common it is. Maybe you should try verifying your facts prior to publication.

  5. Also you got to love how this is called the space academy yet at the same time y'all have a lot of b******* that is completely unrelated to anything scientific whatsoever... Oh yeah and unlike scientific people y'all don't actually verify y'all's sources.
