Take the Mensa Practice Test

The Mensa Practice Test is a fun way to discover if you are Mensa material. While this timed test will not qualify you for membership, it does offer an equivalent score that correlates to your IQ range and provides a strong indication of your likelihood for success should you choose to take our admission test.
The Mensa Home Test can be taken online, and it will be scored immediately. It won't give you the experience of taking a supervised test in a controlled environment, but it will give you a better understanding of the types of questions you'll find when you take the Mensa Admission Test.

Our group covers all of Erie, Niagara, Chautauqua and Cattaraugus counties; and parts of Orleans, Genesee, Wyoming, and Allegany counties.

Mensa is a society whose only requirement for membership is a score at or above the 98th percentile on a standardized IQ test. It provides members with intellectual stimulation and the opportunity to socialize with other bright people locally, regionally, and nationally. It is a not-for-profit organization that has no opinions, and takes no stands on any political, religious or social issues. Mensans as individuals, however, have many different opinions. The only thing that they all have in common is a high IQ.
