His name is Yusuf Shah, he is 11 years old and lives in Leeds, UK. After always listening to his schoolmates saying he’s too smart, he decided to take an IQ Quotient. It ended up getting a better result than some of the great minds on the planet.
To measure intelligence, the English boy took the Mensa test, which consists of 35 problems that must be solved in 25 minutes. It achieved a score of 162, while physicists Stephen Hawking and Albert Einstein scored only 160.as such reveal The Independent.
His mother, Sana, said, “I was so proud. He’s the first person in the family to get the Mensa test. I was also worried because he was always testing in rooms full of kids.” “We thought maybe the adults could scare him. But he did it beautifully,” he added.
Youssef’s father does not hide that “this is a test that requires difficult preparation.” However, he ensures that they only did what they were already doing, “there is nothing specific to an intelligence test”. Youssef’s younger brother, Khaled, who is now 8 years old, wants to take the test when he gets older.
Sixth grader Yusuf celebrated this achievement at Nando’s with his parents and siblings. “I feel special because I have my own certificate and about me”He said to the same device. The boy added that he loves to do things that stimulate his brain.
When he’s not studying, he likes to solve Sudoku and Rubik’s cubes. His first contact with these colorful puzzles occurred in January, when he saw one at a friend’s house. At the end of the month, I was able to solve all the cubes without difficulty. In the future, he wants to study mathematics at Oxford or Cambridge.
