British 12-year Old is Wicked Smart

A 12-year old girl scored 162 on a British Mensa test. Technically Lydia Sebastian is smarter than Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking. Just listening to her talk and you can tell really quickly she is quite clever. The quote below contains a couple of samples from the British Mensa test. I have put the links in for the answers

Quote:
A 12-year-old girl who had an inkling she might be quite clever has taken a test and proved she was absolutely right.

Lydia Sebastian achieved the top score of 162 on Mensa's Cattell III B paper, suggesting she has a higher IQ than well-known geniuses Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking.

The comparison doesn't sit well with the British student, who's currently in Year 8 at Colchester County high school, a selective girl's grammar school in Essex, England.

"I don't think I can be compared to such great intellectuals such as Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking. They've achieved so much. I don't think it's right," Lydia told CNN.

Lydia sat the test in her summer holidays, after raising the idea with her parents and pestering them for the best part of a year.

It turns out the test wasn't that hard after all.

"I was really nervous before the test and I thought it was going to be really hard. But as I started the test, I thought it was a bit easier than I thought it was going to be," she said.

Lydia's not quite sure what she wants to do when she leaves school, although she's leaning toward something "based around maths, because it's one of my favorite subjects."

"All I'm going to do is work as hard as I can, and see where that gets me," she said.

To put Lydia's mark in perspective, the top adult score in the Cattell III B test, which primarily tests verbal reasoning, is 161. A top 2% score -- which allows entry to Mensa, the club for those with high IQs -- would be 148 or over. Lydia scored 162, placing her in the top 1% of the population.

If you think you may have what it takes, try a few puzzles below, courtesy of British Mensa.

1. Shopping conundrum
Prior to a sale, 17 t-shirts sold at £8 each.

The summer sale began and a further 85 t-shirts were sold at a reduced price.

The average amount paid for each tee shirt over the whole time was £6.

What was the sale price?

See the answer here

2. A question of marks
What number should replace the question mark?

42 - - - 170

93 - - - 840

18 - - - 26

54 - - - 274

67 - - - ?

3. Sorting the wheat from the...
If Neil and Diane grow leeks,

Alec and Lisa grow carrots

and Jacob and Chloe grow beans.

Do Tom and Andrea grow courgettes or marrows?

Wow! Those are some smart motherfuckers. I have met exceptionally smart people and some have real social issues. They just cannot relate on that level.

When I looked at those sample questions I immediately went back to test panic mode.

Re: British 12-year Old is Wicked Smart

Interesting. I want to take one of those tests now! I got the first two in the OP but still have no idea what the 3rd one means, even clicked the link but there's no answer. Did you just make that one up? It makes no sense to me!

I searched around and found this home test on the mensa international website. If anyone's interested give it a go, you have to answer 30 questions within 30 minutes. I got 26/30 - fucked up on 3 of the word ones and one of the math ones (because I didn't know the formula required.) It appears that it is just the same questions for everyone because I got a friend to give it a go and the same questions came up.

Re: British 12-year Old is Wicked Smart

Ah wow, I looked up question 3 (your link didn't work.) They wanted you to work out that the last letters of the two names were the first two letters of the food they produced. Interesting, I should have spent more time looking at it because I wasn't even close to thinking along those lines!
