11-year-old scores higher IQ than Einstein

ENGLAND (WGN) -- Anrnav Sharma recently scored a 162 on the Mensa Test without any preparation.

A 162 is the highest mark you can get on the test, putting Arnav in the top 1% of the nation in terms of IQ.

To put this achievement in perspective, both Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking scored a 160 on the test. A 140 is considered the genius marker.

Aside from the high test score, he's a fairly normal kid. He enjoys badminton, swimming, and reading.
