11-year-old Ramarni Wilfred has been welcomed to the Mensa society after an IQ test scored him above Albert Einstein, Stephen Hawking, and Bill Gates. The young genius spoke humbly on the matter, saying “I can’t begin to compare myself to these great men whose hard work clearly proves that they are true geniuses.”
He’s so humble in fact that he was surprised by his test results! He claimed that he did not “feel very confident” after taking the test. But his 162 IQ, which places him in the top 1 percentile in the UK, did not surprise his mother though. She’s known for quite some time that there was something special about her boy. “By the time he was three he could read and write and from 18 months we discussed the news and his favourite book was an encyclopaedia!”
Ramarni was invited to an Oxford University graduation ceremony after writing an award-winning essay, and was then invited to take an IQ test at Birbeck University. “I was the youngest person there and some people looked in their 40’s!” he exclaimed. The junior intellect also remarked, “Who knows? Perhaps my ‘true genius’ moment will come when I grow up but for now I am just proud of myself and happy that my mum and sister are proud of me too.” For the time being though, he’s excited to take part in the Mensa events and get to mingle with the other members.
