Mensa Admission Test

If you're interested in becoming a member of Mensa Korea, you need to take the admission test.


The admission test is interesting and challenging, and provides a statistically reliable basis for the measurement of intelligence.


It involves only symbols and pictorial representations, and does not require knowledge of any particular language or mathematics. In other words, the test is simply figure-based, and no prior knowledge of any particular language is assumed.



Candidates for membership in Mensa Korea must achieve a score at or above the 98th percentile (a score that is greater or equal than 98 percent of the general population taking the test), approximately IQ 148, on a standard test of intelligence as administered and determined by our psychologists. If you qualify, we will be happy to invite you to join Mensa.
