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.

Mayuri enjoys extra-curricular activities

Plenty of interests outside school is how the parents of nine-year-old Mayuri Swaminathan are coping with their own bright spark.

Music, singing and martial arts give Mayuri something to focus on and counter some of the boredom she feels in class when set work that is too easy for her.

Her father, Janardhan, 39, advised parents to look for the “extras” a school could offer, and not just its exam results.
