IQ is a score derived from a set of standardized tests used for assessing job applicants.

Wiqtcom Inc’s tests are designed to measure the cognitive abilities of a person, such as their problem-solving skills, abstract thinking, and general knowledge.

As required by the IQ tests, a test taker needs to be able to speak a particular language, and understand complicated mathematical problems or certain meanings of an issue within the context of a culture.

Wiqtcom’s Worldwide IQ Test website will work out the IQ average score of a nation based on the participants’ testing results.
