A 13-year-old girl in Scotland has entered the genius club Mensa after scoring an incredible 160 on an IQ test, making her as intelligent as Albert Einstein.

Eve Wedderburn, from Fife, was asked to sit in an official test after scoring 160 in a Mensa test in a tin she was given as a Christmas present.

The results placed her alongside Stephen Hawking, Bill Gates and even Einstein, who are all thought to have an IQ of 160.

"I got the test in a tin for my Christmas and got quite a good result from that. Parts of the main exam were quite tricky, such as the picture tests, but some parts I did find easy," Eve said.

Eve, whose dad is a farmer and mother runs a holiday cottage business, said she enjoys studying maths and English at school, but also likes taking part in sports and doing art, 'The Courier' reported.

Eve admitted she was shocked to hear that she had been compared to a genius like Einstein.

"I didn't think I would do so well and just thought I would do okay, so I was quite amazed when I heard that I had been compared to someone like Albert Einstein," she said.

"I've not really decided what I want to do in the future, but I know I would like to go to university," she said.
