Rhea, 10, the next Albert Einstein
Privately educated Rhea lives in London and is the daughter of obstetrician Sonal and pharmaceutical executive Anish.
Her IQ puts her in the top 0.1 per cent of the population for her age, and she has already shown that she can spell words including benthopelagic, phosphorescence and synaposematism.
Rhea says: ‘I want to be a doctor just like my mum and my grandma.

‘Mum gives me work to get ahead and give me an edge. I do think I could be the next Albert Einstein. My parents went to top universities. It adds pressure for me to get into one.’
Her mother adds: ‘It is not enough to be smart, you need to be extra smart.
‘Rhea is definitely one of those kids who does exactly what she puts her mind to. The whole point is to win. She’s got just two options: Oxford or Cambridge.’
Her father says: ‘Why would you not strive to win?
‘If you have the opportunity you have got to grab it. If you don’t push yourself or apply yourself, you are not going to win.’
