There's a lot of misunderstanding about IQ scores. They are NOT

scores out of something. **If the tests are properly chosen and

scored** they already take age into account (up to adulthood or age

15). A score of 100 is the average for the age-group. Usually the

scoring is done in such a way that 50% of those taking it - in this

case 50% of 13-year-olds - will get between 90 and 110, 75% between

85 and 115 and so on. Outside the range 85-115 one can either

compress or expand the scores a little. However, 127 is a very high
