Two-Year-Old Boy In Britain Shows Amazing Intelligence

It is reported that a two-year-old boy in Britain has been compared to the likes of Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking for his amazing intellect.

Oscar Wrigley with a phenomenal IQ of 160 at the Stanford-Binet IQ test is seemingly smarter than most children of his age.

In fact, he might have had greater IQ, could the test conducted at the Gifted Children's Information Centre in Solihull measure more than 160.

Dr Peter Congdon, who assessed Oscar, said he was a "child of very superior intelligence".

"His abilities fall well within the range sometimes referred to as intellectually gifted. He demonstrated outstanding ability," the Telegraph quoted him as saying.

John Stevenage, Mensa's Chief Executive, confirmed Oscar's age was two years, five months and 11 days.

He said: "Oscar shows great potential. Converting that potential to achievement is the challenge for his parents and we are delighted that they have chosen to join the Mensa network for support".

The kid's father Joe, who is an IT specialist from Reading in Berkshire, spoke about his child's intelligence.

He said: "Oscar was recently telling my wife about the reproductive cycle of penguins.

"He is always asking questions. Every parent likes to think their child was special but we knew there was something particularly remarkable about Oscar.

"I'm fully expecting the day to come when he turns around and tells me I'm an idiot."

Oscar's mother Hannah told The Daily Mail: "He amazes everyone. We knew at 12 weeks he was extremely bright. He was unusually alert.

"His vocabulary is amazing. He's able to construct complex sentences.

"The other day he said to me, 'Mummy, sausages are like a party in my mouth'."
