Mumbai born 11 year old Kashmea Wahi scored an awe inspiring score of 162/162 on an IQ test of Mensa. The score puts her in the league of great scientists Stephen Hawking and Albert Einstein. Kashmea is of Indian origin but lives in UK with her parents IT management consultants Vikas and Pooja Wahi. Kashmea took the test to prove a point to her parents.
“It’s overwhelming to be compared with the likes of Stephen Hawking and Albert Einstein the comparison is implausible and I believe it would take loads of achievements for anyone like myself to be able to get into the league of such legends. Anyways, I am buzzing with excitement,” Kashmea said
The Cattell III B Mensa test is a well-known international evaluation process. Cattell III B has 150 questions, often assessing comprehension through passages of texts, while the maximum score that can be achieved is 161 for adults, and 162 for under-18s. Kashmea felt it would be a good way to convince her parents to get off her case for not being buried in her books for long hours.
