Intelligence is measured using multiple factors, something that isn't as common as it is in other countries. Often countries only base their judgement on a few select areas such as math and science, and focus less on social aspects and other areas of intelligence. When a child comes from another country, often they are in a situation where they must operate on 2 levels. This first level is within the environments they are newly exposed to, their school, their extracurricular activities, their places of worship. In these environments, they must gain a lot ore experiences and exposure to the new culture and language. As students who were exposed to the methods of teaching in this country the children would have a better understanding of what is expected of them in a testing environment, and for that reason, to better on an intelligence test.
