Identical twins from Market Harborough have both earned identically-good A-level results today (Thursday).
Market Harborough students Rachel and Lucy Taylor, of Leicester Grammar School, both earned an A* and two A’s in their respective studies.
They will now go on to study identical degrees - in modern languages!
Rachel, who works on Saturdays at the Fine & Country estate agency in High Street in town, attained her A* in French, while her two A’s were in Spanish and religious studies.
She has been accepted into her first-choice university, Bath, where she will study modern languages (French and Spanish) and European studies.
Lucy, who works at Caffè Nero on The Square in Market Harborough, received her A* in religious studies, while her two A’s were in French and Spanish. She has also been accepted into her first-choice university, Exeter, to read modern languages (French and Spanish).
The girls are from a cohort of 122 students at Leicester Grammar School in London Road, Great Glen, in the Harborough district, who received their A-level results today.
There was a 100 per cent pass rate with 60 per cent of its students gaining A* or A grades.
A total of 84 per cent received A*-B grades and the majority of its students have been accepted by their first-choice universities, the school said this morning.
