With an IQ of 162, a 12-year-old schoolgirl in the UK has been rated brainier than even Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking.

Olivia Manning, from Liverpool, has been accepted into Mensa, the largest and oldest high IQ society in the world after she got a whopping score of 162 in an Intelligence test.

Her score is not only two points better than German genius Einstein and physicist Hawking, it puts her in the top one per cent of intelligent people in the world, the Daily Mail reported.

Being honoured with entry into Mensa means she will join a network of brains from across the globe.
