Dayaal Kaur, a 4-year-old Birmingham girl of Indian origin was inducted into the Mensa Society for scoring an unbelievable 145 on the IQ test.
The Mensa Society is a group of the smartest people in the world, all of whom have unbelievably high IQs.
Fun fact: Albert Einstein was a member of the Mensa Society and he wasn’t even their top scorer.
Although Albert Einstein had a score of 160 IQ points at his peak, Dayaal at the age of 4, managed to get a score of 145 IQ points.
As Dayaal grows older, the chances of her getting a higher score increase exponentially.
As per reports, Dayaal learned the alphabet when she was just 14 months old and had started counting to 20 before she was 16 months old. By this time, she was also able to construct basic sentences.
She even went through a psyche evaluation, which recommended that she should be fast-tracked at her school, and moved up a year.
Her parents, Sarbjit & Raj Singh are proud.
Sarbjit Singh says, “I knew she was an exceptional child. I am biased, but it was crazy how quickly she was able to learn the alphabet and read. I could have a proper conversation with her when she was only two.”
Her parents believe that if Dayaal is not challenged adequately at this age, and is in the same class as other students of her age, she might get frustrated.
The Mensa Society also stated that they only accept about 5 percent of the applications that they get from the UK every year and Dayaal was in the top 0.01 percent of the entire UK, in terms of intelligence, and mental acuity.
