Eighteen-year-old identical twins Aya and Masa Shanout were extremely pleased upon knowing that they shared the same A level results at Camp Hill, a school for girls located in Birmingham, UK. Both girls got an A in Chemistry and Biology, and an A in Math.
Thanks to their A level performance, the parents of these brilliant twins will be seeing their daughters off to the University of Birminghan this coming September. Although they may have different personalities, the sisters have decided to choose the same course, Dentistry.
Masa admitted: “For a while I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do, I thought about doing medicine – but Aya wanted to do dentistry, and she encouraged me to look into it. The more I looked into it, the more I decided I liked it.
She also shared: “Our parents are really happy, especially my mum – she wants us to do everything the same and always be together. Our friends and teachers were quite surprised – it’s really unlikely to get into dentistry in the first place, and even more unlikely to both get a place at the same uni.”
Aya added: “We’ve always been at the same level, ever since we were little. We’re really close – we study together and always help each other out, so it’s really good – we’re going to carry that on at uni too. Dentistry can be stressful, so it will be good to have someone in the same position who knows what you’re going through.”
The siblings predicted: “When we get there I think most people will be surprised to see identical twins on the same course – most people are surprised when they meet us, they think they’re seeing double. But although we look identical and we’ve got the same interests, we’ve got different personalities.”
When asked about how they feel about their academic situation, the girls replied: “We’re really happy with our grades, and so happy that we get to go the same uni together. We’re ecstatic, it’s just unbelievable.”
