The time in which you complete it is factored in too, along with age and gender.

I took one ages ago and got something like 155, but online tests really don't compare to the real thing.

I'm not even going to bother going through all of the questions. It is very rare that an online test is accurate. You should search how to take an actual IQ test at a location near you. An IQ test also measures spacial battery, which this does none of, so it is inaccurate anyway considering it is missing an entire section.

Very true. An online true/false iq test can't be too accurate. I'm not very concerned about what number I may score on a real test, I was just curious as to what it could be and why I scored what I did on this.
