    Hi!

    I wasn't sure where to put this thread, but here I am!

    Out of interest, I was wondering what all of your IQs are for those of you who have taken a test.

    Although it was only a free online test I took ( and it was the first I've ever taken ), so it was probably not the most accurate, I got 116.

    Is this good considering that I'm in Year 9? Could my IQ improve? If so, how can I improve it?

    Thank you! I look forward to seeing your replies.

    First time: 120
    Most recent test: 176

    How?: Keep doing the test.

    Took me a grand total of 5 times to boost my IQ by 64.

    I don't hold much trust in the online tests. They often don't take into consideration age, which is a significant part of the test; as it's age relative.
    There are more reputable proper tests that you can take IRL though; had a look at some as part of my psychology degree.
    I have gotten scores from 100-120 in the past. IMO IQ's don't really count for all that much.

    I did one that said I had IQ of 137 but it was just an online test so I'm dubious as to how accurate it was. 116 is a good score - anything above 100 is above average. You can improve it by just exercising your mind similarly to how people exercise their bodies.

    Hey! Congrats on your IQ score :O From what I've read your score is considered 'above average' so congrats! It's a good score no matter what age, but seeing as you're only in year 9 it's really good and may even go up because you still have a few years of school left I just finished my A levels and I think my IQ is 120 I'm not sure how you could improve your IQ, though I'm sure reading won't hurt!

    It's not just IQ: go on a height thread and everyone's above 6ft, go on a thread about career and everyone's going to be getting at least 50k a year...

    I was trying to be ironic by miscalculating the increase in my IQ score but I guess that sort of went over everyone's head. Maybe I am a genius.

    I know what you mean; I've never understood the attraction of lying to random people on the internet who are never going to know who you are in real life - what is the point? why would anyone care? what would it have to benefit one's real life?

    My IQ isn't real

    It's complex

    So your IQ is imaginary.

    Doesn't sound very good when you say it like that does it?

    I was talking to my father, Bill Gates, about this the other day actually . But seriously, yeah, it is a little pathetic.

    If it makes any difference next year your school may put you in for a Yellis test which is a bit like a IQ test as it tests your aptitude (but with a very different style) and compares you to other pupils scores and what they achieved at GCSE to 'predict' what you should (on average) achieve in your GCSEs. Generally if your in the top 10% in the country your school tell you and say your 'Gifted and Talented'

    I got 141 in the maths section and 134 overall which apparently was in the top 2%. Really aptitude tests are BS and count for nothing; you can drastically change your grade up or down depending on how much effort you put in.
