Generally, there are two ways to prove that you qualify for Mensa: either take the supervised Mensa test, or submit a qualifying test score from another supervised test. You can also try the Mensa Home Test if you are interested in joining Mensa but not sure if you want to take the supervised test (this does not count as an eligibility test).

You can apply to sit a supervised Mensa admission test by filling out the online application form, emailing your details (name, contact phone numbers, postal address and email address) to join@mensa.org.nz or by completing the printable application form and mailing it to us. Testing sessions are held regularly in the main centres, and at other centres in New Zealand when required.

You can bypass our testing process if you have achieved a score above the 98th percentile in any IQ test conducted by a registered psychologist and approved by our supervisory psychologist. Simply provide prior evidence of another intelligence test including the test score. If your evidence and the score is accepted you'll be invited to join.
