Qualifying Test Scores

There are a number of previously taken tests that, any one of which, will qualify for Mensa membership. These are commonly taken in either elementary school, or college entrance, or military admission. This below list is not exhaustive, and the full list has some other caveats; we simply list this here for a quick reference for you. The best source in all things “Membership” is this informative section at American Mensa.

We offer, and proctor periodic tests locally as well. Contact us for that information, or any other question.
