Test dates

Mensa does not currently endorse any online IQ tests because they cannot be verified. The Mensa online workout will give a good indication of how well you might do in an IQ test but will not generate an IQ score.

The Supervised Mensa IQ Test session takes the form of pencil-and-paper tests conducted under examination conditions. Candidates should allow approximately 2.5 hours for the full session. Two tests will be taken on the day, usually with a comfort break between papers. A score in the top two per cent on either paper will result in an invitation to join Mensa. Results will normally be issued by post 7-10 days after the test.

The Supervised Mensa IQ Test is only suitable for persons over the age of ten and a half years. Younger children would need to be assessed by an educational psychologist to find out their IQ score. Candidates under the age of 16 must be accompanied to the test centre by an adult, who must remain on the premises for the duration of the session.
