In order to land a membership with Mensa International, individuals need to possess an IQ in the top 2 percent of the population, according to the high IQ society's website. After taking a Mensa IQ test, 15-year-old Fabiola Mann learned that her score actually placed her in the top 1 percent of the world's most intelligent people, The Economic Times reported.
In fact, Fabiola's IQ of 162 was so high that it exceeds those of Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking. The U.K. resident, who hopes to study medicine at Cambridge University, always had an interest in puzzles, which made her want to tackle the Mensa test. Although Fabiola found the questions to be rather confusing, she clearly had nothing to worry about.
"We went on holiday soon after [the test], and it was a month before I finally got a letter through the post telling me that I had an IQ of 162 and was invited to join Mensa," Fabiola told the news source. "I was thrilled."
If parents believe their children may be as gifted as Fabiola, they may want to have them sit for an IQ test for kids and see for themselves.
