How do I submit acceptable documentation?

To submit your past testing evidence, you have three options:

  1. Submit the original documentation yourself. If you would like the original returned, please say so explicitly in your letter.
  2. Send us a notarized copy of the original documentation (costs usually around CHF 20).
  3. Have the school or testing service send your scores directly to us. 

 

Where do I send my documentation?

Mail (per post) your documentation to:
Isabel Hotz
Kalchbühlstrasse 43

What will happen next?

After the arrival of the required documents they will be checked by our leading psychologist: Does the test comply with the quality standards of Mensa? Has it been performed properly? Which IQ scale was used for the results? All evidence of prior testing will be evaluated individually, and Mensa reserves the right to make the final decision on the eligibility of the test. These evaluations may take up to three weeks.

 

All information is treated as strictly confidential. Once eligibility of the prior evidence has been confirmed, Mensa will issue an invitation for you to join.
