Mensa - The high IQ society
5th February 2016
Mensa was founded in England in 1946 by Roland Berril, a barrister, and Dr Lance Ware, a scientist and lawyer. They had the idea of forming a society for bright people, the only qualification for members of which was a high IQ. The original aims were, as they are today, to create a society that is non-political and free from all racial or religious distinctions. British Mensa has more than 20,000 members from all walks of life with IQs in the top 2%, the newest and youngest member being Vedaangh Rungta in Y6N who took the test at 10 and half years old (the minimum age required) and scored in the Cattell III B scale in the top 1%!
We are all very proud of Vedaangh's achievements and would like to whole heartedly congratulate him from everyone at the Swaminarayan School!
