    The point of these kinds of tests is that you have to do it alone, getting help makes the results meaningless.

    the point of the email I got was a bit of fun, simple as that.
    only reason I wanted to kow the missing clues was to ensure there wasn't a mistake, having to type exactly what they have the answer.

    I mean the amount of provinces in SA is not "general knowledge"

    And god love ya if you thought this test demonsrated something significant. In that case, where scoring 19 makes you a genius , I was quite happy to get 30 :)

    The results were alrready meaningless other than as entertainment; I find other more significant ways to exercise and assess my intellectual abilities.

    shouldn't it be '60 minutes in an hour'

    I doubt that this constitutes a real MENSA test as it is culturally biased and depends on general knowledge rather than mental ability. Any ideas?

    Sounds more like the Diffney's Quiz.
