York students who moved to Canada as young children when their parents immigrated here are more likely to do better on an intelligence test even if their actual abilities are pretty much the same. The reason being is because children are at the stage where their brain can easily be trained to absorb new knowledge. For instance, I came to Canada at the age of 3 who did not know how to speak English. However, as time went by I began to adapt to the language as I am exposed to English speaking individuals during school. Unlike my parents, they too are able to speak English but I noticed that my dad would struggle sometimes with grammar as he has already adapted to our native language. Similarly, my knowledge with technology is greater than my parents because my whole life revolved around technology and as for them they did not have this growing up. To my understanding York students would do better than their parents on an intelligence test because of the environment that they grew up in, in which they adapted to the culture more quickly.
