Could be depending on your meaning. If you mean a University degree, then you need to make that clear.

It's an incorrect use of the word "determine". Your genes and upbringing determine your I.Q. I think what you're meaning to say is that having a degree does not necessarily reflect your I.Q. That is, a person with a degree may not have a high I.Q., and a person who doesn't have a degree might still be very intelligent. Is that what you were trying to say?

Yes, but you might also consider: A certain degree does not determine intelligent quotient (IQ).
