The father of the English twelve year old Nicole Barr thought as parents often tend to do, that his daughter was pretty smart.
So he decided to take her to do a Mensa test, to see if she was good enough to be accepted by the organization. And that she was. More than good enough, actually.
On the test she scored 162 points. That's according to Western Daily Press two points higher than Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking have received, and 22 points over the score in order to be defined as a "genius."
Her father was in other words right: Nicole is pretty smart.
- Nicole's IQ puts her quite comfortably in the top percentage of the population. Only children can get a score higher than 161 points as it is the max-score for adults. The test is adjusted to the age of children, says a representative of the Mensa organization to Western Daily Press.
Nicole's father doesn't have to worry about his daughter being some kind of super-mutant, as the Mensa representative says that other children have also received this score earlier.
Nicole plans to be a doctor when she grows up.
