An Indian-Origin Girl is in Top 1% of the World’s Brightest People
Eleven-year-old British Asian girl Iona Mandal from Birmingham, UK, has achieved an astonishing score of 162 in the gruelling British Mensa’s IQ test in the Cattell III B – thus putting her in the top 1% of brightest people in the world.
Out of 20-odd adults, Iona was the only child to give the test held last week in Birmingham.
The raw scores are “normed” to take account of the candidate’s age and 162 is the highest score which can be achieved by someone under 18. For an adult, it is 161.
