ANOTHER set of twins graduate with firsts

They did the same GCSEs and everything

Another pair of twin sisters have graduated, and this time, both with firsts.

Emma and Catherine Rose both managed to bag a first in Biomedical and Life Science from Lancaster.

As well as getting the same top degree, the 21-year-old sisters also studied identical GCSEs and A Levels at Gloucester High School for Girls.

Catherine said: “I’m sad to leave and I would do it all again if I could. Lancaster feels like home to us now.”

Emma said: “We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Lancaster. We have gained confidence, independence, knowledge and an unforgettable experience from our time at university.”

“It’s safe to say we’re very close. We both love being twins. It’s always great to have someone there who is experiencing the same things you are.

“There are very few disadvantages except the fact that we are too often grouped as one person instead of two individuals.”

The twins lived separately in the first year as they were in different colleges, but they both switched colleges to Pendle so they could graduate together in the same ceremony.

Emma said: “In the second and third year we lived together off campus with friends. We often socialised with each other as we share the same friendship group.”

The sisters are both now applying for identical graduate schemes.

Last week, a set of twins from Bowland College graduated from the same course, but only one got a first.

Charis, who graduated with a 2:1, said: “I like to blame my boyfriend for why I got a 2.1 and Flora got the 1st.”
