TWINS Hattie and Kay Baxter are both celebrating GCSE success.
The 16-year-olds, born two minutes apart, achieved nearly identical grades in subjects such as maths, English language and science.
Hattie got ten grade 9s, one distinction and an A in maths, while Kay received nine 9’s, one distinction and A in maths. The pair, from Malvern St James school in Worcestershire, had revised for five hours a day, even during school holidays.
Their mother Rebecca Baxter said: ‘They have worked so unbelievably hard and they have both been so dedicated.
‘They have not been competitive at all and have been completely supportive of each other.’ The twins, who have Duke of Edinburgh bronze and silver awards, will stay on at the school’s sixth form.
‘They have gone down different paths for their A-levels with Hattie wanting to do maths, chemistry and physics, taking after her father. Kay has chosen English literature, history and religious studies. She takes after me,’ Mrs Baxter added.
