    The results were quite worrying, for punctuating the average results were scores that showed significant aspects mental retardation.
    You have an undergraduate degree and you're about to start a Masters in a few weeks' time.

    Whatever your limitations might (highly theoretically, according to free online IQ tests) be, you're working around them effectively.

    I wouldn't dwell on it. I'm not sure what these sub-categories mean without descriptors really.
    Can sort of see visuo-spatial and phonology maybe; problems with handwriting?

    Sorry; didn't see that! Not consciously at least :P
    Makes sense with the scores, then.

    I know lingering unduly on this, but this is probably the reason why I am failing on both a career and academic root..

    Well done on your degree. It's a tough 3 years!!
    Your A levels are good.

    Making documentaries depends on other factors and qualities which you may excel at, I'm sure it will go well for ya! They tend to be a team effort too?

    Everyone has their weaknesses I guess. Just play to your strengths. I'm sure you have many. Besides, neuroplasticity is your friend; you can always improve your weaknesses

    I really wonder whether you need to take a step back.

    A few weeks ago (according to your TSR posts), your life's dream was to pursue creative writing. Now you want to make documentaries, but you're about to spend a lot of money on a Business Masters - which you don't seem very confident about and which doesn't seem to lead to either of your stated career interests.

    Are you sure that the Masters you've applied for, is the right thing for you at this stage of your life? Your IQ is clearly not a problem, but disorganised thinking and a lack of consistency might be a bigger issue in the longer term.

    Documentaries utilise an aspect of creative writing...

    I am using this master's a step up to what my degree didn't provide me to bigger and better experiences. Like you said I am doubting whether this master's is tailored towards my skill-set and hence my IQ, which is why I am asking this particular question.

    Your choice of Masters course and your IQ are unrelated.

    You're academically capable of achieving the Masters, otherwise you wouldn't have been offered a place.

    Whether you've chosen the wrong course or not, is nothing to do with your IQ. They're two totally different things.

    They say that people with my IQ should seek jobs for those have no degrees...
    IQ (especially as determined by online tests) is functionally meaningless. Don't worry about it in any way, and certainly don't take it into account when making decisions about your future.

    But it would be fitting explanation to why I have been failure, hitherto.

    You haven't been a failure. You have been distinctly average, then managed to get into a masters course, which lifts you well up into the top few percent.

    Which is related to my IQ that is "distinctly" albeit slightly below average.

    Your undergrad degree result was a 2:2 - that was NOT a failure. It wasn't what you wanted or expected, but it's by no means a failure. And the fact that you now have a Masters offer is another success.

    You haven't been below average in any way (the average is still "never went to university"), and the two are not significantly correlated: there's a reason that no university asks for an IQ score to get in: it simply isn't related to success in a degree.
