Accepted IQ Tests

You can qualify for Mensa membership by showing evidence of a qualifying score in one of the many standard IQ tests we accept. The test must be administered by a fully registered psychologist.

If you have or can get evidence of a score at or above the 98th percentile in one of these tests (listed below), we will assess that evidence and, if it is acceptable, offer you membership. You can order the form, which is to be completed by the psychologist who tested you, by applying on line. The cost for the form and evaluation by our Consulting Psychologist is $40.

If you had such a qualifying score in a test at any time in the past it can be used as prior evidence, even if it was done as a child and you are now an adult, or if you have suffered from some condition or accident which may have affected your mental capacity.
