Many websites and social media apps claim to be "Mensa" IQ tests but they have nothing to do with us. Taking these tests is good fun, and many have very good content, but the scores they generate can't be verified.

There are currently NO online IQ tests that can qualify you as a Mensa member.

The only way to qualify for membership is to achieve a qualifying score on a supervised, standardised test organised by Mensa, or through a recognised qualifying test administered by a psychologist.
