Twin peaks in exams for Beth and Megan
IDENTICAL twins Beth and Megan Whiteley could only be separated by one single grade in their equally astonishing GCSE results.
The Bollington girls were among the high flyers at the King’s School, with Beth getting one 9, eight A*s and two A grades, while Megan got the top A hat grade in Further Maths along with nine A*s and an A grade.
Beth said: “We are not competitive, but those around us try to turn it into a competition.”
However sister Megan disagreed, “I don’t know about that; we are pretty competitive and always trying to out do each other.”
Neither would say whether their brains came from their mum or dad but Beth added wisely, “We know what they would say, but we’re not telling.”
They have similar interests too and when they are not revising enjoy reading, music and revealingly, added Megan “a good argument too.”
Principal of King’s Girls’ Division Helen Broadley said: “As far as we are concerned, both Megan and Beth are equally as talented, equally as wonderful and both simply a sheer joy to teach.”
Isabella Vickers achieved straight A* and two Grade 9s including full marks in her GCSE
