Twelve-year-old 'genius' believed to have higher IQ than Stephen Hawking and Albert Einstein

A 12-year-old boy from North London has been found to have an IQ of 162 – higher than the estimated scores of Stephen Hawking and Albert Einstein.

Rahul, from Barnet, is a contestant on Channel 4’s Child Genius and shocked viewers during Monday’s show by answering every single question correctly.

The self-declared “genius” correctly memorised the scientific name for the apricot tree (prunus armeniaca) and knew that phoenix dactylifera refers to the date palm. During a spelling test, he was able to spell words including accouchement, hyponatraemia and garrulous.

People with a higher IQ are happier, study finds
     In the timed question round, In the timed question round, he beat every other contestant by scoring 14 out of 15. The timer ran out before he could answer the last question.

However, Rahul lost out to rival Joshua during Tuesday’s maths test, prompting him to lose his cool.

Having initially said he “accepted” that Joshua had won and that he would now focus on the next round, Rahul then attempted to walk off set, saying: “I don’t want to comment on my defeat so do you mind if I just leave, please?”The 12-year-old, whose favourite subject is Latin, had earlier said: “I think I’m a genius.

"I'm good at mental maths, general knowledge and I find it quite easy to memorise stuff compared to most of my peers."

“Most kids want immediate gratification but I also want long term gratification.

“If I could play maybe my Xbox now I would be really happy now but then I might be sad later on because I haven’t revised for my test.”
