Mahnoor Cheema, a 16-year-old British-Pakistani student, has accomplished something remarkable.

Mahnoor set an unheard-of record both within the United Kingdom and internationally by passing 34 subjects in total at the General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE) level, a truly amazing feat.

During her Year 10 as a private candidate, Mahnoor passed 17 subjects with A* grades, which contributed to her impressive accomplishment.

In an even more remarkable turn of events, she increased her repertoire by 17 more topics, bringing the total to an astounding 34. With the highest number of subjects ever taken by a student in the history of the UK and EU GCSEs, this accomplishment has now reached a new apex.

Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Math, Economics, Sociology, Psychology, English Literature, Latin, German, French, Classical Civilization, History, Film Studies, and Drama are a few of the 34 subjects Mahnoor excelled in.

A Pakistani student named Haroon Tariq set a record ten years ago when he earned a combined 47 As in his O Level and A Level exams for the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE).

In a conversation with a national daily, Mahnoor Cheema described her motivational journey. Originally from Lahore, Pakistan, her parents, Barrister Usman Cheema and Mrs. Tayyaba Cheema, relocated to the UK in 2006 for their children’s respective further education at Lincoln’s Inn and SOAS.

After receiving her initial education in a private Lahore school, Mahnoor enrolled in Class 5 at Langley Grammar School in West London.

This exceptional young person, who is of Pakistani descent, also has a number of other accomplishments. Mahnoor has earned international recognition for her IQ, which is an impressive 161 on the Mensa IQ Test, in addition to her academic accomplishments.

She is now smarter than Albert Einstein, who is known to have had an IQ of 160. Mahnoor belongs to the top 1% of people on the planet in terms of intelligence.

She is one of the youngest people in the UK pursuing a music diploma and has also earned distinction in Grade 8 of ABRSM Music Theory and Practical. She has also made the finalist list for the esteemed John Locke essay competition, whose awards ceremony is scheduled to take place in Oxford later this year.

Mahnoor’s interest in learning goes beyond GCSE subjects. Her desire to devote her life and career to helping people is fuelled by her intense passion for medicine. This perseverance led her to take the University Clinical Aptitude Test (UCAT) and the Biomedical Admissions Test (BMAT) at the age of 15, where she performed brilliantly and received a score of 3,290, placing her in the 99th percentile of test takers.
