AN 11-year-old schoolboy has joined Mensa after scoring higher than Bill Gates, Stephen Hawking and Albert Einstein in an IQ test. UK Mirror covers the full story:Ramarni Wilfred started showing signs of genius as a toddler, when his favourite book was an encyclopedia.
He could read and write by the time he started reception at school and last year, at the age of 10 and still in primary school, wrote a philosophy paper on fairness that earned him a 2:1 and a mock Oxford graduation.When his reception class wanted to move him up a year, mum Anthea objected, wanting him to grow up with other kids his age.
Prof. Hawking, Microsoft founder Gates and Einstein all have 160 IQs. Ramarni scored 162, putting him in the top 1% in the UK.
Anthea, 37, said: “He’s still just a little boy doing normal childhood stuff. While he reads the New Scientist and the Sky at Night, he still plays with his dog, watches the Disney Channel and reads comics.
“Mensa allows him to talk and be with other people as clever as he is for the things that go over my head.
