An 11-year-old Iranian high school student in the United Kingdom is making headlines for getting a remarkable result on her Mensa IQ test that even surpasses those of great thinkers such as Albert Einstein and the late Professor Stephen Hawking.
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.
That's an interesting article, but I'm not sure how accurate. First of all, there is no such thing as "the Mensa IQ test". They accept the results of several different tests as long as the results are verified. If you wish for Mensa to administer the test they will, but they don't give you the results in the form of your IQ, it's just a pass/fail situation. Additionally, IQ tests are less reliable in determining your actual IQ when the results are very high or very low.
