Tucson Mensa Offers Admission Test


(Tucson, Az) – On October 19, at 10:00 AM, Tucson Mensa will host a public testing session at Holmes Tuttle Ford, 660 W. Auto Mall Drive, Tucson, AZ 85705.

The Mensa Admission Test includes two tests that feature questions involving logic and deductive reasoning. A person who scores at or above the 98th percentile on one of these tests qualifies for membership in the international organization. A certified Mensa proctor supervises the testing session.

“One in 50 people qualifies for membership,” said Hardy Grant, President of Tucson Mensa. “If you think you might qualify, you probably do.”

Tucson Mensa includes 190 active members and is one of 132 local Mensa chapters nationwide. The test is open to anyone age 14 and older, but parental permission is required for those ages 14-17. Test takers should arrive at the test session to register one hour before testing and should bring a photo ID. The testing fee is $40. American Mensa also offers a culture-fair, non-language test.

“Being a member of Mensa has been a great experience for me,” continued Hardy.  “I encourage everyone to take the test and discover the wonderful opportunities available through Mensa.”

Based in Arlington, TX, American Mensa is an organization for anyone who scores in the top two percent of the general population on an accepted, standardized intelligence test.
