Yes, it’s true, the famous scientist Albert Einstein, regarded as one of the most intelligent humans to have lived, did flunk a college entrance exam. The author of his prestigious Theory of Relativity failed the Zurich Polytechnic exam when he was close to completing high school. Of course, in fairness to the renowned genius who read physics textbooks at age eleven, the exam was given in French, a language the Einstein knew very little of.
