Aum Amin, a year 6 pupil at Queen Elizabeth's grammar school in Barnet, sailed through Mensa's Intelligence Quotient (IQ) test registering a score of 162 - two points higher than the most famous boffins there is. He sat an exam at Birkbeck, University of London, early last month and found out his phenomenal score a week later.
Bright spark Aum said: "I am very happy and feel proud to have achieved such a good score, I am looking forward to join Mensa. "I always have put my 100 per cent efforts in the things I do and give my best shot. I keep my focus on the goal I want to achieve."
The results place Aum's IQ amongst the top one per cent in the world. Aum’s mum Boskey Amin said: "We were so proud when we found out he got the highest possible score, we couldn't believe "He's in the top one per cent of the world along with only 20,000 other people.
"We really proud of him but he knows we are motivated to keep him grounded, he knows he has a long way to go to follow in the footsteps of his heroes, Einstein and Hawking. He wants to take their work on to the next level."
The clever youngster has been rewarded for his remarkable intellect with invitation to join exclusive brain-box society Mensa. Aum, is also a keen cricketer, an accomplished chess player, an avid Star Wars fan and also researches history in his spare time.
And he now wants to start study engineering and medicine at university, with the aim of building a robot that can perform surgery. Mum Boskey, 35, said she sometimes has trouble helping her Aum out with his homework. She said: "He might ask us a question sometimes, but a lot of the time we don't have a clue what he is working on as it is so advanced."
