Borderline intelligence

Category of intelligence

Borderline intelligence (also called borderline intellectual functioning or borderline mental disability) is a category of intelligence in which a person has lower than normal mental ability. IQ levels in this case are between 70 and 85. It is not as bad as intellectual disability (IQ 69 and under).[1]

In school years, people with borderline intelligence are known as "slow learners".[2][3]
