Mensa, the high IQ society, are on the hunt for big brains in Swindon...


If you're Christmas cracker hat felt a bit snug this year, or you just feel that you boast more forehead inches than most, than a test next month in Swindon could prove that you're not just big headed but big brained.

Mensa, the high IQ society, has been separating the eggheads from the smegheads since 1946 and this year they're on the hunt for as many of the UK's brightest to join in their 60th anniversary celebrations.

Over a million closet brainiacs, in the UK, are eligible to become members of Mensa and this year the society wants to find as many of them as they can to mark their anniversary.

The Brain

And Swindon is as good a place to start the search as any …

So on March 5th, at the Ambrose House Conference Centre in Swindon, a two-hour supervised IQ test session has been organised by Mensa for anyone wanting to put their gray matter to the test.

And if your little gray cells record a score which puts you in the top 2% of the population than you'll be eligible for membership.

But with Mensa's two-for-one offer of £15.00 per booking, for you and a friend, the question is who do you take along?  Your 'Tim nice but dim' buddy or your clever clogs pal?

Anyone up for the challenge of the Mensa test should pre-book themselves on to the supervised test to be assured of a place.  The sessions take two hours and are conducted under exam conditions. 

For more information click on the Mensa link in the right hand column or contact Helen Oliver on 01902 772 771.
