A four-year-old boy in the UK, believed to have the same IQ as physicist Albert Einstein, has become the youngest member of an exclusive genius club which has just 85 members worldwide.

Sherwyn Sarabi, from Barnsley, South Yorkshire, stunned psychologists after scoring more than 160 in an IQ test.

Already a member of the genius club Mensa from the age of three, Sarabi, has now been admitted to HELLIQ, a society with much more demanding entry requirements, 'Daily Express' reported.

"He keeps on getting even higher recognition for his abilities. He still keeps giving us a shock from time to time," Sherwyn's mother, Amanda said.

Sherwyn astounded his parents after speaking his first words aged just 10 months and was talking in full sentences at 20 months.

"Sherwyn has a very superior level of intelligence, he is incredibly gifted and his vocabulary is out of this world," said educational psychologist, Dr Peter Congdon, who measured his IQ.

Sherwyn knows the entire periodic table of elements. He started school at three and now attends private school in Brighouse, West Yorkshire.

"His intellect reaches the highest possible levels of reason and when he talks to you he has the social skills of a much older child," Congdon said.

In order to become the member of HELLIQ, a person needs to perform in the top 0.003 per cent of the population, the report said.

Although, Einstein never took an IQ test as none of the modern intelligence tests existed during the course of his life, experts believe he had an IQ of around 160.
