A twelve-year-old vagabond young girl has been hailed a genius after she scored an astounding 162 in an IQ test – making her more intelligent than Einstein.
This puts Nicole, who is from the voyaging group and lives in Harlow, Essex, in the top one percent of intelligent people on the planet.
Her father James says her staggering accomplishment is ”the talk of the gypsy community”.
The average adult IQ score is 100, whilst a score above 140 is thought to be that of a genius.

Nicole, who is in Year 7, said: “When I discovered I got such a high score, it was so unexpected. I was stunned.
“I recall when I was in primary school and I was an angel in a school play, another girl who was playing the other angel didn’t turn up so I learnt her lines as well.”
The schoolgirl, who goes to Burnt Mill Academy, in Harlow, appreciates perusing, singing and dramatization, and plans to go ahead to study to become a doctor.
Her father James, a 36-year-old gutter cleaner and driveway repairman, is chuffed with the outcome she got subsequent to taking the test five days already.
James said: “The story has been circumventing the gypsy group, especially on Facebook where it continues being shared.
“It’s pleasant for us to be in the news for something useful for a change. This demonstrates it doesn’t make a difference where you originate from, anybody can be scholastically splendid.”
At primary school, Nicole was quite a long while in front of her companions and could handle complex algebra before the age of ten.
Helena Mills, head of the BMA group of six schools including Burnt Mill Academy, said: “Nicole is a brilliant student. She works incredibly hard and has devoted herself into many different activities in her first year with us.
“For example she has been camping, entered writing competitions and taken part in a national maths challenge.
“She lives and inhales our unofficial motto of hard work pays.”
Mensa Spokesman Ann Clarkson said: “Nicole’s IQ puts her easily inside of the top one percent of the populace.
“No one but kids can get a score higher than 161, as that is the most extreme IQ score for a grown-up.
“While a score of 162 isn’t precisely obscure, it is still quite rare.”
