11-Year-Old Iranian Girl Beats Einstein and Hawking in IQ Test

An 11-year-old schoolgirl has achieved the highest points in Mensa IQ Test, beating the renowned scientists Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking.

Tara Sharif scored 162 points, the highest score possible and well above the ‘genius benchmark’ of 140. “I was shocked when I got the result. I never expected to get such a good score,” says Tara.

Tara took the non-verbal test in Oxford, which involved understanding the meaning of words and answering a set of questions in the prescribed time.

Tara hails from Borazjan county in the Southern Iranian Bushehr Province. Her father said that he is extremely proud of her and also surprised at how well she scored.

“I knew she is intelligent but such a great success was unexpected to me,” he said.

The 11-year-old shared her future plans after acing the Mensa IQ Test. “When I am older, I would like to do something related to mathematics,” she said.

Tara is now eligible for the membership of Mensa, which is also known as the ‘high IQ society’.


  • Really?! She is just an 11-year old child. If you posted this comment intentionally, then I doubt we have a pedophile among us here. If not, then you are simply a dumb man.

  • Janab, she is 11 years old. And you are way older than her. So please delete this comment. Thank you!

  • Compared to her you have an IQ level lower than that of a chair. You’re not even in the same species as her.

    And she’s a child, dude. What is wrong with you!?

  • Shame on @propakistani for letting this man comment these kind of things
    He’s truly a senseless dumb person who doesn’t know his limits
    For a while know we all have seen him comment senseless bullshi**t on every post and now he went beyond that , showing his colors of pedophile… he should be banned from this forum
    and if he works for @propakistani then the blog should be held accountable for his actions and we all should boycott this forum
    We should report this kind of man for cybercrime

  • It may be real that she has a great iq power but Einstein and others had not only the great iq but also they had a creative mind what made them extraordinary

  • My sincerest congratulations to the little Iranian girl. May the almighty Allah bless him with highest score and achievements in life and contribute to the development of peace justice freedom and democracy.

  • Mensa IQ test? Really?! Their test is not an official IQ test. You might as well take one of those silly twenty question measure you IQ test on the Internet. Let’s see wha she achieves with this IQ over a lifetime career.
