Bill Gates graduated from high school in 1973 having scored 1590 out of 1600 on the college SAT test, a near perfect score at the time.
There are no confirmed reports on the late Steve Jobs’ IQ, and the estimations vary wildly from 160 to over 200.
Jobs was smart enough to skip the 5th grade. His fourth grade teacher challenged him greatly, and after tests, the school offered Steve’s parents the opportunity to let him skip all the way to high school.
His parents said they would only allow him to skip one grade.
Steve Jobs passed away on October 5, 2011 after losing his battle with pancreatic cancer.
