A 13-year-old scored 162 IQ, the maximum score possible in the Mensa IQ Test. The staggering test results effectively places Neha Ramu of southwest London beyond the brilliant minds of software billionaire Bill Gates, and physicists Steven Hawking and Albert Einstein. Gates, Hawking and Einstein are estimated to have an IQ of 140, 160 and 160, respectively.

13-year-old Neha Ramu moved from Bangalore, India, at the age of seven. According to Ramu, the Indian education system that she initially received gave her a good head start as she continued her education in the UK.

The parents of 13-year-old Neha Ramu did not understand the extent of Ramu's gift until they realized the schoolgirl received the highest marks possible in her entrance exams.

"When I found out I got such a high score it was so amazing and unexpected."

"Stephen Hawking, Albert Einstein, they've achieved so much," continued the humbled 13-year-old. "It's not right to compare me to them just because of my IQ."

"If I don't put in my effort and make use of my IQ then there's no point in having it."

13-year-old Neha Ramu's favorite pastimes include a game of chess and reading. Despite Ramu's dedication to education, her mother explains that Ramu still makes time for TV, swimming and time with her friends.

Neha Ramu wishes to study neurology and aspires to attend Harvard in the future.
