Solihull twins are top of the class in Mensa IQ test

Aisling Kiely 12th Nov, 2016

A CLEVER youngster from Solihull has given Einstein and Hawkins a run for their money after achieving the highest possible score on the Mensa IQ test.

Ishita Dubey, who attends St Alphege Junior School, has always excelled at school and decided to set herself the challenge to take part in the intelligence test.

The 10-year-old sat two verbal and non-verbal reasoning papers and passed them with flying colours – receiving the highest possible score of 162 on one of the papers.

Her twin brother, Ishaan, also stepped up to the mark and passed the tests with an outstanding set of scores.

Proud mum, Nidhi said she always knew there was something special about her twins and considered entering them for the Mensa IQ test a long time ago.

She added: “Growing up, we soon realised they were both able to pick things up very quickly and considered putting them forward for the test.

“As parents we are extremely proud of our children who have joined Mensa High IQ society at such a young age and hope they will continue to enjoy and excel in life.”

After receiving such fantastic scores, the twins have since been accepted as members of the Mensa IQ society – falling into the top one per cent of the population.

Excited as to what the future may hold, the intelligent pair have taken their entrance exams for King Edward Camp Hill Grammar School and are looking forward to meeting other members of the Mensa society.
