IQ (Intelligence Quotient) is the colloquialism for the measure of intelligence.
It can be measured by using the formula; IQ = 100 X MENTAL AGE
CHRONOLOGICAL AGE (ACTUAL AGE)

IQ = 100 X 14 = 140
140 is an exceptionally high IQ
With an IQ of 150, one is a genius and is accepted into MENSA.

infuriate, frustrate, confuse and totally annoy the average Ardrossan Academy pupil.
The three pieces of mahogany fit together on the x, y and z axis. Its official
name is the Triple - Axis Tormentor.
The under pressure pupil has to dissemble and re-assemble the three pieces in a fixed
time period. As time goes on the victim’s IQ drops but their brain grows. This
is a surprisingly difficult task. Most pupils find the puzzle impossible to put
back together again.
Oh no Jordan has put it back together!!!
Wait a moment though. Here come the new S1. New brains to be tormented.
Oh no, oh no, oh no!!!!!! The Tormentor has been totally humiliated by a little
First Year girl!!!!!!!
She managed to take it apart and put it back together in a new record time of around
20 seconds. No one was timing Gabi because no one has ever managed to dismantle
and reassemble the Tormentor first go before, let alone in such a time and a first
year pupil. Even 5th and 6th year pupils have been totally tormented.
At the moment the Tormentor is lying at the bottom of a drawer alone in shame and
Nevertheless, the Triple Axis Tormentor will be back and it will be more tormenting
This image graphically demonstrates the effect of the Tormentor. This scan shows
the state of an average Ardrossan Academy pupil’s brainbox as the brain tries to
solve the mysteries of the Tormentor. Even the most resilient pupil’s brain and
nervous system can be reduced to jelly due to the pressure of trying to solve the
Triple Axis Tormentor.
