Eleven-year-old Kashmea Wahi—daughter to Kashmiri Pandit banker, Pooja-Gadoo Wahi—has excelled in the Mensa IQ test with the highest score of 162. She is one of the youngest to achieve that.
With this feat, she has established herself more intelligent than Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking.
Mensa is the largest and oldest high IQ society in the world. It is a non-profit organisation open to people who score at the 98th percentile or higher on a standardised, supervised IQ or other approved intelligence test.
“I did not prepare any extra for this test,” a media report quoted her saying. “The test is about using more of using logic and common sense and I used whatever I have learnt at school.”
Born in Mumbai in 2004, Kashmea moved to London in 2008 with her IT Consultant parents, dad Vikas Wahi, originally from Delhi and mom Pooja-Gadoo Wahi, originally from Kashmir (both currently working at the Deutsche bank).
She proved to be one of the brightest, not only in sports and other extracurricular activities, but always achieved top grades in academics, media reported. She studies at Notting Hill And Ealing Junior School, based in West Ealing, which is a top rated independent school in the UK.
Besides, achieving top grades each year, she was instrumental in her school team making it to the 3rd place in the Oxford Maths challenge in 2015.
