Update 14 August 2015: James Barr has contacted us via email to let us know that Nicole has been accepted to Mensa. Congratulations! We also incorrectly stated in our original article that Nicole lived in a travelling caravan community, which was incorrect. This has been updated.
Twelve-year-old Nicole Barr, who lives in Essex in the UK, has scored 162 on an IQ test – beating renowned geniuses Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking by two points.
