Mensa IQ test for Chrome
More About Mensa IQ test
One free public test and 3 tests including material to test groups of people (contact us for that).
Or test your Mensa IQ with free realistic Mensa problems.
Learn how to solve the problems with an IQ test and a Helper to learn how the problems are constructed. 15 minutes training a day will greatly improve your test result.
The four tests are all a little bit harder than the Mensa Admission test so if you manage them you ought to be almost sure to become a Mensa member.
The Helper is based on the fact that Mensa problems consist of a limited number objects, operations and properties.
You can run them online or offline.
The problems are constructed by members of Mensa with max test result (no errors).
1. About the tests.
The Mensa entrance test exists in two versions. One with 36 problems and time allowed 1 hour. Another with 45 problems and time allowed 20 minutes. However the tests are similar apart from that test 2 is much easier. Both versions are represented here but the first test is much harder and we find it more fruitful to solve hard problems for training purposes.
However, you can not improve your intelligence by training but you can improve your test result by getting used to '2D image' problems.
For example; it has shown that a person who takes the test for Mensa entrance twice often has a better result at the second time. Up to 20 units more (for example from 112 to 132). It has been explained with that they by then are used to the test situation and the nature of the problems.
As these tests are made very similar to the Mensa iq test I hope you will get used to it so that you will reach your top result earlier.
Three complete iq tests with 36 instructive and "Mensa alike" problems each and one later test with 45 problems. A description of the solutions to all the problems is also included. Time allowed for first test is one hour each and 20 minutes for the second (like Mensa) and they are all independent of language (culture fair). An iq between 100-135 is calculated. The free iq test is equal to one of the three iq tests.
Most countries have only problems without numbers and words (culture fair). Unique problems that you have never worked with. In some countries, however, problems are added with numbers and words. These problems are not very fruitful to practice with because you have practiced them for years as part of the school work.
We find it fair that people who are used to the Mensa problem type not will have benefits from that when they take the Mensa entrance test..
2. Real Mensa iq test procedure.
The problem solving works in the same way as example from Bergman's iq test.
However, in the real Mensa iq test you will have the 36 or 45 problems in a pad of paper and an answer sheet with 3 columns of 12 or 15 lines like the table to the left in the free test.
The test is watched by a test leader. He will instruct you not to spend too much time at one problem.
All problems must be solved without aids. No paper or pencil or similar is allowed.
You are not allowed to use your pen to solve the problems but only to write down the answers. However, you can put a character (for example a question sign) after the answer if you are uncertain and wants to go back and check it. This is a good help and that's why we don't use answers to click on.
If you have solved all the problems right you have an IQ of 135 or more, reached by 1/100 of the population. However you only need 131 (or 1/50) to become a member of Mensa.
Your age is also taken into consideration. The older the slower.
3. Bergman's test versus the Mensa test.
The following properties are the same in Bergmans IQ test and the Mensa iq test:
36 or 45 problems
Degree of difficulty (however more hard problems in Bergmans test).
Similar problems but no copies.
Time to solve the problems (1 hour or 20 minutes).
Black and white 2D images without letters or numerals.
Culture-fair iq test.
Layout of the test (simple and robust).
The difference is that you don´t solve the problems at a PC in the Mensa iq test. Only paper and pen may be used. However the procedure is made as equal as possible.
