Twin peaks in ex­ams for Beth and Megan

Macclesfield Express - - GCSE RESULTS -

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
