Could you beat Einstein or Stephen Hawking in a pub quiz? Probably not, but one 11-year-old boy could probably give them a run for their money.

Ramarni Wilfred, of Loom Grove, Romford, took a Mensa test and has been told he has a higher IQ level than Steven Hawking, Bill Gates and even Albert Einstein.

He said: “I can’t begin to compare myself to these great men whose hard work clearly proves that they are true geniuses.

“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.”

Ramarni, his mum and older sister moved to Romford two years ago but it was a lot earlier that his mum Anthea started to realise there was something a little special about her son.

Anthea, 37, said: “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 part of the gifted and talented programme, a scheme to develop the abilities of more able pupils, as well as the Brilliant Club. It is a programme for those aged 10-16 who come from less privileged backgrounds, held at St Anthony’s Primary School, in Upton Avenue, Forest Gate.

After being invited to a graduation ceremony at Oxford University after writing an essay awarded a 2:1, he was then invited to take an IQ test at Birbeck University.

But it was to his surprise, he was given an IQ of 162, placing him in the top 1 per cent in the UK. Ramarni said: “I was surprised and very happy when I read the results of my IQ test as I didn’t feel very confident ­after completing the test.

“I was the youngest person there and some people looked in their 40’s!”

Mensa’s chief executive, John Stevenage, said: “Ramarni’s score shows he has great potential and we are pleased to welcome him to Mensa.

“We hope he will enjoy being part of the society and interacting with fellow members.”

As a member, Ramarni will now be invited to exclusive events and will be able to mix with people of his own age with the same interests as himself.

He added: “I don’t really see having a high IQ as a big deal but I do feel very privileged to be invited to join Mensa and can’t wait to ­attend some of the events.”

when i started reading this.. i had to scroll back up like hold on how old is he again?? plus with a british accent… 

Quote He said: “I can’t begin to compare myself to these great men whose hard work clearly proves that they are true geniuses.

“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.”

but anywho, thats amazing Clap  i cant wait to see where hes at by 15/16 

i wonder how intelligent his parents are.. and if people are just born that way or if its something she did while carrying him.
