Very Clever Boy – level 2

07-07-2017 15:00

An 11-year-old boy scored 162 in the Mensa IQ test. Only around 2 per cent of people reach a score higher than 132, which is a ticket to the Mensa club. The boy’s IQ could be higher than Einstein’s or Stephen Hawking’s.

The boy is from a town in England and one of his hobbies is badminton. He wants to use his intelligence to help the world.

He said that the test was not ’that difficult’, but he admitted that he had to guess on a few questions because there was not enough time.

Difficult words: Mensa (a group of people who believe that they are very smart), IQ test (a test that is supposed to measure how much information that you know and how you solve problems), admit (say that something is true).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
