Twins from Bourne who studied together and took their exams together are celebrating getting almost matching results.

Bourne Academy pupils Rebecca and Harriet Jarvis, 18, celebrated getting into university after picking up their A-level results yesterday.

The twins each got two Bs and a C in the three subjects they studied together but Harriet just pipped her sister by achieving an A in maths compared to Rebecca’s B in geography.

The twins, who studied chemistry, biology, and general studies together, were not surprised their results were so similar.

Harriet said: “Sometimes we are even seen as the same person. We do everything together, we have the same friends and even did driving lessons together.”

Rebecca added: “Whenever we do the same thing we are always about the same. We are really pleased and a bit shocked because the exams were so hard.”

Like thousands of others across the country the girls logged on to the Ucas website yesterday morning to discover if they had got into their chosen universities.

Both were accepted by their first choices – Rebecca by Canterbury Christ Church to read history and archaeology and Harriet by Liverpool John Moores to read forensic psychology with criminal justice.
