Meet Saanya Verma: 11 year old highest scorer in Mensa IQ test

New Delhi: Saanya Verma, an 11-year-old Indian girl in Britain scored the maximum possible marks in the MENSA IQ test. She has scored 162 – the highest possible score on a Mensa test which only one per cent of the population have achieved.

Newsgram personally interviewed Sunita Pati Verma, the proud mother of the year 7 girl, studying in a leading independent school in London.

Mensa invites only those students who are able to achieve top 2 percent score on either of diagrammatical test or the verbal reasoning ability. Mensa spokesperson confirmed it and said that she is one of the youngest to achieve this feat.

A student of year 7 in a leading independent school in London, Saanya has a bagful of choices and interests when it comes to studies. A voracious reader who is interested in Maths and Cosmos from the beginning. Her mother Sunita Pati Verma told NewsGram that Saanya these days has developed an interest in robotics. She has also been developing the codes for the robots (Lego Mindstorms) and electronic instruments (Arduino).

The Library Monitor of her school, Saanya enjoys reading. She is part of many clubs in school like Debating, Science, Maths, French and current affairs.

Her father, a banker by profession, Sunil Verma spends a reasonable amount of time with her discussing areas like science and robotics. He says that Saanya surprises him with questions.

She further added that Saanya has loved every visit to India. She believes in the act of sharing and she hopes to influence children to take an active part in the education. She wants to help in encouraging children to study and shine across the world.

Her mother said that this is a proud moment not just for the family but the whole Indian community. She says India has been an important part of the journey. A lot of the family members are still back in India and they are happy of her achievement.

Saanya Verma’s success is the story of a girl, who has shown signs of brilliance that could help her do great things for herself and the society. However, the challenge starts from here, the guidance and preservation will be important.

Saanya like any other 11-year-old has a lot of aspirations. She wants to be a scientist, or may be a mathematician or may be a banker like her father. One thing is clear if she keeps getting the same support and working hard, she will be able to attain great heights.(Image-Sunita Verma)
