Five students from London Enterprise Academy make it to MENSA

gffBangla Mirror Desk :

The gifted and talented students of London Enterprise Acacemy took part in the UK MENSA IQ Test.  IQ or Intelligence Quotient is an attempt to measure intelligence. This generally means the attribute of intelligence refers to quickness of mental comprehension (or mental agility).

Intelligence is often confused with knowledge, wisdom, memory, or other attributes and in general has a variety of meanings depending on the context in which it is used. The term IQ usually refers to the attempt to measure a person’s mental agility. There are many standard IQ tests in use around the world. On most intelligence tests, average IQ score is 100, but some tests give different numerical values to the level required for entry into Mensa, in the same way that the same temperature is expressed by different numerical values on the Fahrenheit and Celsius scales.

Just before the end of spring term, forty of our students were selected to participate in the British MENSA IQ Test. We are extremely happy to announce that majority of those pupils performed above average (top 50%). Five of our year 8 students performed in the top 2% which means they can enjoy free MENSA membership. These five students will now be able to receive the following benefits for free:

  • networking and social activities
  • special Interest Groups – currently more than 100 hobby and interest groups
  • monthly magazine and regional newsletters
  • local meetings
  • online social networking community with chat forums
  • weekend gatherings and conferences
  • lectures and seminars
  • mensa-branded products

Anikha, Mahfuj, Yusuf & Muwahhid performed in the top 2%. Thayef was in the top 1%, he achieved an IQ of 161 from a maximum of 162 which puts him one point above Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawkins.

Principal Ashid Ali said “I am delighted that five of our young people are able now able to access the benefits from MENSA and I hope they will continue to work hard and follow their dreams by going on to colleges and top universities. All their parents should be really proud of their achievement”.
