Mensa has sensationally reduced its stringent entry level.
Formed in 1946, Mensa is open to anyone who can demonstrate an IQ of 132 and above.
This was, since its inception, aimed at the top 2% of society however with GCSE's and A levels being comparatively easier than what they were some 20 years ago, Mensa has had to effectively, move with the times.
Meaning table in Latin, the society now allows any individual who can demonstrate an IQ of 64 and rising.
Spokesperson for Mensa Jean Humphreys said 'we are aiming to target fresh and diverse sectors and hopefully by reducing the entry level, we will appeal to a broader and diverse sector, notably the Chav market. The Chav market warrants exciting possibilities and by us (Mensa) drawing a new line in the sand, we will achieve that'.
Other public bodies are also considering revamping their mandatory entry levels however the DVLA has yet to comment if it will amend the current driving test to a 5 minute multi choice exam including lifelines such as phone a friend or ask the audience.
