Qualification

The Glia Society

Requirements

Required for membership is the 99.9th adult population centile[1] on any of the accepted heterogeneous tests (that is, tests with a mixture of item types) or on each of two accepted homogeneous (one-sided) tests with different item types. Only first attempts are accepted, not retests (that is, one attempt per test is allowed). Only the tests listed are accepted. Memberships in other societies are not accepted as proof of intelligence.

Some of these tests can be found on I.Q. Tests for the High Range.

Tests with a mixture of item types

Required: 99.9th centile (unless otherwise indicated).

Unsupervised

Supervised

Verbal tests

Required: A score corresponding to the 99.9th centile (unless otherwise indicated) on one of these AND one one of the Numerical, Spatial or Logic tests.

Unsupervised

Supervised

Numerical tests

Required: A score corresponding to the 99.9th centile (unless otherwise indicated) on one of these AND one of the Verbal, Spatial or Logic tests.

Spatial tests

Required: A score corresponding to the 99.9th centile (unless otherwise indicated) on one of these AND one of the Verbal, Numerical or Logic tests.

Logic tests

Required: A score corresponding to the 99.9th centile (unless otherwise indicated) on one of these AND one of the Verbal, Spatial or Numerical tests.

Notes

[1] This means children too will be admitted if they qualify by adult norms (not childhood or any kind of age peer norms).

The minimum requirement is the actual 99.9th centile; that is, the actual value of 99.9 or higher. That is, not accepted are lower values like 99.89 that become 99.9 when conveniently rounded up. Or, if one insists, the requirement is 99.90. Although the information in this paragraph is superfluous, some require it for they otherwise claim the right of rounding up from as low as 99.85 onward. For further clarification it is pointed out that because of the extremely non-linear nature of centiles, rounding at the high end is not acceptable as the values there are ever farther apart on any underlying linear scale.
