Meet Anushka Binoy and Kashmea Wahi, both 11 years old, and both from London.

What sets them apart from others is that they both have an IQ higher than celebrated genius Albert Einstein's.

The girls took Mensa's IQ test and both scored a whopping 162, while Einstein is estimated to have an IQ of 160.

Anushka lives in Isleworth, with her parents who are from Kottayam, Kerala.

"When I walked into the exam hall, I was flabbergasted. I mean, the room was full of grown-ups and I felt very nervous. But when I started the exam, I found it easier," Anushka told the BBC in an interview. "Now that I'm in Mensa, I really want to join the creative writing group because I love creative writing. It gets my creative juices flowing and I love writing on my blog," she said.

"After the exam she wasn't very confident than she was going to pass it, and then we got the result and realised she had achieved the maximum possible score," said her proud dad Binoy Joseph.

Mumbai-born Kashmea moved to London with her parents in 2008.

"It's overwhelming to be compared with the likes of Stephen Hawking and Albert Einstein, the comparison is implausible and I believe it would take loads of achievements for anyone like myself to be able to get into the league of such legends. Anyways, I am buzzing with excitement," six-grader Kashmea told Zee News.
