Everybody must have already heard about Mensa – the most intelligent community. But how could one actually become a member of Mensa? That’s a question not all can answer.

Mensa is an organization and a community of the most intelligent people around the World. It consists of Mensa International overseeing national Mensa organizations in specific countries. Its aim is to create a highly stimulative intelligent environment in which the members could network and use the intelligence in favour of the human race.

But how does Mensa choose its members? It is simple, the only thing you need to do is to be within the 2% of the most intelligent people (which varries between countries). Mensa uses specifically prepared IQ test, which you need to pass being controlled by certified Mensa member. You can apply for these tests on local Mensa websites. But this has a few disadvantges: firstly you need to register for this well in advance and you need to come to the specified place in specified time. Also, you can try this IQ test only a few times in your life, and need to have a certain period of time break between the tests.

But if you want to test your IQ online, do you also have an option? Not for the IQ test that brings you an instant membership to Mensa if you score high; for this you still need to go to local Mensa and register for the test. However, online IQ tests (such as ours on http://iq-test.co.uk) are also prepared by one of the local Mensa organizations so the structure and accuracy is the same as taking test officially. And it brings you many other advantages: convenience of doing the IQ test from home, instant results, comparisons with friends and across nations and many more. So what about trying such online IQ test and if you score high enough, you can always register for the official local Mensa IQ test?
