The 12-year-old boy’s score surpassed the estimated IQ of 160 by famous scientist Albert Einstein

Last year’s score was 162, the highest possible for an 11-year-old boy, beating the famous scientist Albert Einstein’s estimated IQ of 160.

Daniel, who dreams of going to Oxford University, came out in the top one per cent on the Mensa test – which measures logic skills, reasoning, verbal intelligence, vocabulary and math.

He moved to Birmingham from China with his family when he was 7 years old.

Daniel told The Sun: “I couldn’t speak English and felt a bit out of place. It really took me a long time to settle down but now I love it.

“I study and work very hard. I did when I lived in China and I have continued. I am very pleased that my results are back. It feels so special. I love math, problem solving and vocabulary testing a lot. They are so great.

“I’m very satisfied. I love testing myself and doing things like this.

“I’m very proud. It’s a huge achievement. I’ve seen other kids complete the test but not get the same score as me.”

Father Tom, 40, Daniel’s business manager, said: “We are really proud parents. Surprised. He is a genius. ”

Mensa, founded in Oxford in 1946, is open to people with IQs in the top two percent.

US Presidents Abraham Lincoln, Ben Franklin and Bill Clinton scored 128, 160 and 137. Napoleon’s was 145 and Freud’s was 156.
