For comparison, it estimated that Albert Einstein's IQ was between 160 and 190.
Mensa is a society for people with high IQs. The test Evan took, the Cattell B III exam, would require a score of 148 in order to be invited to join the society.
The youngest member of Mensa is four-years-old, whilst the oldest is 103.
He lives with his parents Reny and Siju in Snodhurst Avenue, Chatham.
His hobbies include dancing, kung-fu and drumming, and he is able to solve a Rubik's cube in under a minute.
Mrs Thomas said: "We knew that he was gifted, but we never expected to receive such a high score.
"His teachers were not surprised because they expected him to achieve such results.
"The school helps him a lot in broadening his knowledge. If he gets a book, he will finish it within an hour or two.
"It's a very good gift, and it's a blessing."
Evan, whose favourite subject is maths, wants to become a mathematician when he is older.
He be starting at the Rochester Math School in September.
