Want to join Mensa? Curious?
Testing is typically held monthly and announced about 1 month before the date. Check the Calendar in the Events section for the dates, times, and locations.
Testing takes a little less than two hours. A score at or above the top 2% will qualify you for an invitation to join Mensa. To take the test, you must be 14 or older, and any test-taker who has not yet reached the age of 18 will need the written permission of a parent or guardian. Mensa also offers culture-fair, non-language tests for those for whom English is not a primary language.
To find out the dates, location, and details for tests, please go the Events calendar and click on the testing event. To register for a test session, email our Testing Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org. Pre-registration is not required but it is to your advantage to do so. In the unlikely event that more people show up for a test than can be accommodated, those who have pre-registered will receive preference over walk-ins. Also, it will allow you to be notified in the unlikely event that a test session must be canceled or rescheduled.
