IQ tests test your IQ, so the only reason an IQ test could be geared towards one group is if that group on average has a higher IQ than the other. I don't think this argument works in your favour.

EDIT: Afterall, in your example it is a perfectly valid conclusion to say that the atheists, who specialised in the medical field know more about human anatomy. Is this unfair towards the religious mechanical engineers?
