Mensa, the oldest and most famous high IQ society, is one of the world’s most exclusive groups.
British Mensa has only 20,000 members, but is reaching out to Cambridgeshire’s brightest to find out if they are one of more than 1.6 million people eligible for membership to the illustrious society.
The group is offering the chance for people in the region to discover their IQ and whether they would be offered membership to Mensa at a supervised test session in Cambridge on May 21.
The tests will be held at Cambridge Central Library in St Andrew’s Street at 2pm and must be booked in advance at www.mensa.org.uk/iq-tests or by calling 01902 772771 (option 1). The tests will cost £24.95.
Only those who achieve an IQ in the top two per cent will be invited to join the society which was founded in 1946.

The supervised test consists of two separate industry-standard assessments; the first measures verbal reasoning skills and the second assesses visual and spatial logic using images and diagrams.
Candidates need to score in the top two percent on either of the tests – not both – to be offered membership.
