Lauren Marbe of Essex County, UK shocked her teachers and the world recently when she scored a 161 on a Mensa IQ test taken purely as a lark. Her score puts her above known genius Albert Einstein, and cosmologist Professor Stephen Hawking in terms of raw IQ score by a single point.

This is one blonde who clearly defies the classic "dizzy" stereotype applied to fair-haired women everywhere. Lauren is the daughter of a taxi driver and dreams of entering show business as a career someday.

Lauren presently attends Roding Valley High School in Loughton but hasn't yet told her friends about her amazing score, reports the Daily Mail.

She said: "I really enjoy science and doing experiments, but I also love acting and dancing and playing musical instruments.

"I do theatre workshops and loads of sports like swimming and I really enjoy creative subjects.

"But my favourite subject is biology and I want to be a vet when I’m older because I love animals and I don’t mind blood and things like that.’ Victoria’s parents, who live in Claverley, near Wolverhampton, and run a health and safety consultancy, said they had always known their daughter was bright, but had not quite realised she was at genius level.

Her mother, Alison, 44, is over-the-moon for her gifted daughter. "When she was at nursery she had the reading ability of a child twice her age and she won science awards at school," Mrs Cowie added.

"We always knew she was clever – she was always in the top sets and her teachers always praised her – but we never quite thought she’d be in Mensa.

"She’s just a normal child to us. She likes acting, dancing and singing and she’s not the kind to always have her head stuck in a book."

She sat for the Mensa-accredited examination earlier this month alongside some of her schoolmates.

According to a story in The London Telegraph, British Mensa Executive, John Stevenage was asked to comment on the development and he responded as follows: 'Lauren Marbe achieved a score in the top two percent on a Mensa IQ test making her eligible to join Mensa.”
