Ramarni Wilfred of Loom Grove, Romford, England in 2014 and at the young age of 11 took an IQ test that consisted of analytical thinking, mathematics as well as spatial recognition and scored higher than Bill Gates, Stephen Hawking and Albert Einstein.
An alumni of the gifted and talented program for children from under privileged backgrounds at St. Anthony’s Primary School in Upton Avenue, Forest Gate, Wilfred after completing an essay was solicited to take the IQ test at Birbeck University which he aced with a 162 score.
When asked about the special prowess of her son and how she had achieved this, Wilfred’s Mother Anthea said; I wish there was a secret, in which case I would gladly share it but honestly, it’s all him. He has always been very articulate and studios with an intense thirst for knowledge. He has never been interested in playing in the streets; favoring books over ball games.
For Wilfred, his motive has remained the same, he said; “I can’t begin to compare myself to these great men whose hard work clearly proves that they are true geniuses. Who knows? Perhaps my ‘true genius’ moment will come when I grow up, but for now I am just proud of myself and happy that my mum and sister are proud of me too.”
