If the date and time provided is not suitable, please apply for the test and let the tester know. We will arrange a suitable time and date.

NOTE : This test is given for the purpose of entry to Mensa. Your IQ score will not be given, only whether you qualify or not in the 98th or 99th percentile.

Generally, there are two ways to qualify for Mensa:

Take the supervised Mensa test (You must be at least 10 years old to sit this test).
Testing sessions are held regularly in the main centres, and at other centres in New Zealand when required.


Submit a qualifying test score from another supervised test, or you can bypass our testing process if you have achieved a score above the 98th percentile in any IQ test conducted by a registered psychologist and approved by our International Supervisory Psychologist.


Simply provide prior evidence of another intelligence test including the test score. If your evidence and the score is accepted you'll be invited to join.
