Admission For High IQ Societies: GRE Scores Required

GRE scores are accepted by some high IQ societies or also called genius societies. Intellectual clubs are organizations that restrict their members only to people with a specified IQ level. The minimum passing score depends on the selectivity of the society and the period the test was taken.

Is there a correlation between GRE Score and IQ?

No, there is no equivalence between GRE score and IQ. GRE tests are assessments of learned lessons and skills. On the other hand, implicit cognitive abilities are being tested by IQ tests. GRE examines the level of mastery in terms of reading, problem-solving, and writing skills. IQ tests measure the intellectual abilities and potential of a person. GRE Test and IQ Test have different purpose, content and scoring system.
