Taking a standardized test is the only way of having your intelligence measured. There are different tests suited for people of different ages, including children. Very young children should only take an intelligence test under the supervision of an educational psychologist. There are plenty of different tests available, many of them online but you have to choose your test carefully if you want to get accurate results.

And then, there is the issue of costs. Not all tests available online are free and even if you choose to pay for a test, it does not necessarily mean that the results you get would be accurate.

If you are looking for a test that is both free of cost and accurate, you have come to the right place. In this article, we will tell you what the best IQ tests available for free online are. We suggest you go over the list of 5 tests before choosing which one to take. Of course, as every single one of the tests that we will talk about is free, you can take more than one of them or, even, all of them. Nothing is stopping you so knock yourself out!

Before you start, you need to know that the different tests are presented in no particular order. You are recommended to read our reviews before deciding which one you would like to take.

IQTest.com

The IQTest.com is only suitable for people who are fluent in English as it is more culturally-specific that some of the other free online intelligence tests that we have reviewed in this article.

That does not mean that all the questions are language-based, far from it. You will need, however, an excellent command of English to answer many of the questions that make out this test.

Here is more information about the IQTest.com.

There is a total of 38 questions in this test and no time limit, as such. Having said that, the time you spend on the test will also impact your results, so you should attempt to finish it as quickly as possible. There are no age requirements as such but because an excellent command of English will be necessary to answer most questions, this test is not suitable for young children.

IQ-test.dk

The last test in our review is IQ-test.dk. This test is suitable for people of all ages, including very young children and elderly people alike, and also for people of any background. Why? Because the test is purely based on logic. You will not need an excellent command of English (or any other language), or any previous general knowledge in order to do well on this test.

Some people consider this test to be the most accurate IQ test that you can get online and for free. We can’t say whether that is the case or not but it has to be, at least, among the most accurate ones if it has garnered that reputation.

Here is more information about IQ-test.dk.
