Tara Sharifi, a student at Aylesbury High School, recently took the Mensa IQ test in Oxford where she scored well above the “genius benchmark” of 140. The 11-year-old student scored 162 points on the test, which is two points ahead of Einstein, a theoretical physicist who is considered as one of the two pillars of modern physics, and famous cosmologist Professor Stephen Hawking.


The Mensa IQ test, which needed to be answered within a set time, focused on the student’s ability to understand the meanings of words, according to Iran Front Page.
“I was shocked when I got the result – I never expected to get such a good score,” Sharifi said.

With the score she received, Sharifi now qualifies for the Mensa membership, which is also known as the High IQ society.

“It was a joint decision between me and my parents to take the test,” the girl said. “It will be a wonderful opportunity to meet other people within the Mensa system. I have told some of my friends at school and they were really impressed.”
She also added that when she becomes older, she would pursue “something related to mathematics.” Her father, meanwhile, admitted that he was surprised by the result, but was proud of what his daughter achieved.

“I am extremely proud but very surprised at how well Tara scored,” her father, Hossein, said, Bucks Herald UK reported. “I figured she might do well when we watched TV and she would get maths questions before the contestants. I knew she was very clever but I did not think she would have such a high IQ.”

    1. They print, offer, created, proctor and score the test. Take it for free but don't pay for the results. Go right ahead. The crossword puzzle is also free...

    1. The atomic bomb has already been created. You should not attempt to insult people with knowledge you know you do not have. She is 11 years old, and has done nothing wrong. You are showing your prejudice just because she came from a country that you know nothing about. And you do not even have the courage to show your name. Please try to become a better person.

  6. My only comment is that high IQ individuals know never to make a point of their tested IQ. That's in bad taste - even when talking to other Mensa members. Hoping that she will learn this as she gets more mature. Otherwise, congratulations and please join.

    1. It is newsworthy, and happy positive news for a rare change of pace. No doubt after a few people mentioned to her not to mention her IQ and casual conversation or elsewhere, she will have instantly assimilated that wisdom.

  10. The beginning of intelligence is: No mental stress and attentiveness. She has got support that very much grounded her impressive performance. I dont see it as a anything cos she told her score. I think she was asked those questions for her to provide those answers.

  16. A TEST WHICH FOCUS'S ON ones already existing available knowledge set, and Not problem solving Capability, is NOT a test of IQ. it is more a test of indoctrination of desired data, and Memory. If This is what the Mensa test IS, then it is Bunk. - - - Example, a super genius whom knows at best, how to read and write but does Not know all the other things this young girl does because they have not yet been exposed to said data, will have a Low score. Like most of us might. Where as a lower intelligent individual whom has had the specific data drummed into them so that they have it memorized will score High. This si Not a test of Intelligence quota, but of education level and memory recall of the data one has been Fed.

  17. My goodness, it appears we have some people angry they didn't score as high as they thought they should, and chose to take it out on this bright young woman, this page, and the other commenters here. Shame on them! This young woman deserves acclaim, not hate! I hope she gets the opportunity to use her intelligence in whatever way she chooses to use it, and that she has a brilliant future. ��
