Identical twins Jessica and Juliette Hughes are less Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee more Tweedle Clever and Tweedle A A A Grade.
The Oulton Broad pair answer questions in tandem, finish each other’s sentences, have studied the same subjects, achieved the same grades and are off to the same university to do the same course.
The East Norfolk Sixth Form College students have achieved three A grades in maths, chemistry and biology and are off to the University of Liverpool to study anatomy and human biology.
They both said: “It felt pretty good to open the results, we got what we were hoping for. We have supported each other through the whole thing and will probably spend a lot of time together at university.”
Jessica said: “We are going to live in separate rooms, but will still push each other on like we have always done. We revise together and have a bit of a rivalry. Our teacher’s always joked that they wanted to see a competition to see who could get the highest mark.”
The pair - former Benjamin Britten High School students - share a love of the natural sciences, and are looking forward to studying the human body in more depth.
“We have always had the same interests,” said Juliette.
“We were not really sure what we wanted to do...”
“...and then we found this course and it sounded good to us,” Jessica said.
They are unfazed by the large city of Liverpool and are looking forward to facing the experience together, and can always swap clothes if one of them needs to be in two places at the same time.
Juliette added: “I think it will be easier for us than other people because we know each other, but in a new situation, will we both be the same?
“So it will still be a bit scary.”
