While we don’t have tests that you can take at home, there are many
practice tests available on the Internet. You will find tests, puzzles
and other Mensa resources at:

The sole criterion for membership in Mensa, is to score within the top
2 percent (98th percentile and up) on an accepted and properly
supervised qualifying test.

Mensa will be holding just such a qualifying session on SATURDAY, 07
MAY 2005 at the Private Room, OAKWOOD Premier, Glorietta 4, Ayala
Center, Makati.

The qualifier is a culture-fair test of the type that is often
referred to as “abstract reasoning”. It does NOT test for math or
language skills. While there is no strict time-limit, most people will
finish in an hour or two. You may register and START your test anytime
between 9:00 A.M. and 3 P.M.

YOU will ONLY need to BRING a valid ID (with photo) and the testing
fee of P400 (or the discounted P150 rate for UNDER-GRAD students). We
would also appreciate it if you could verify your postal address and

Pre-registration requires NO pre-payment. Payments will only be
received at the testing venue itself. Providing us with your name and
contact info beforehand simply allows us to be better prepared to
accommodate you. Pre-registrants may choose their time slot and will
have preference over walk-in test-takers.

The identities of the those who take the test as well as any results
are strictly confidential. The results will be mailed to you within a
month or so. If you don’t quite make the cut this time around (we all
have off days), you may re-take the qualifying test after 6 months.
