Deaf schoolboy scores 'higher than Einstein' in IQ test

A 12-year-old boy has joined Mensa after achieving 162 on an IQ test, a higher score than Albert Einstein or Stephen Hawking.

Darren Toh, who was born deaf, is also an accomplished musician. He scored the highest grade possible for a child on the test.

The boy from Aughton, Lancashire, said he thought he was smart but "not quite a genius".
