Mensa Singapore conducts the Mensa Singapore Admissions Test (“MSAT”) for persons aged 14 and above to see if they qualify for membership. The MSAT involves symbols and pictorial representations, and does not require knowledge of any particular language or mathematics.
If your child is below 14 years old, and you wish to admit your child to Mensa, you need to bring your child to any qualified Psychologist for a test such as the WISC-R test. If your child has undergone similar tests before, you may submit those test results to Mensa for consideration. Upon receiving of your report/test results from the psychologist, kindly forward it to Mensa Singapore. If the result meets Mensa criteria, we will revert to the parent/applicant submitting the test results/report. This is how Mensa Singapore presently accepts younger children to join the society.
Information about fees, testing schedules and availability are available at Mensa Singapore’s website, as well as directly from the Mensa Singapore office. At this present time, the MSAT costs S$65 per person, and the subsidised price for full-time student and NSF is $45.
Important notes about the MSAT:
This test is to be used solely for qualification for membership in Mensa Singapore and should not be used for any other purpose.
Mensa uses a percentile as cutoff for membership to avoid confusion due to different numerical scores from different tests. However, your results will not be available to you, it is used for admission purposes only.
You cannot practice for this test nor can you improve your result by taking this test repeatedly. Candidates are not allowed to take this test more than once within a 12-month period. You are only allowed to take the test a maximum of two times and test fees are strictly non-refundable.
If your result is within the top 2% of the general population, you will be invited to join Mensa Singapore. During the test, your proctors and testing officers will also be able to tell you more about Mensa.
Mensa Singapore treats the test procedures and all results to be private and confidential. Candidates can expect to receive their results within 3 to 8 weeks.
