TWINS Sam and Toby Kunin had double delight when they woke up to identical grades at A-level yesterday.
The Alwoodley boys, pupils at The Grammar School at Leeds, each achieved two A*s and an A in this year’s examinations.
Sam notched up A*s in French and German and an A in maths, and will take up a place at Clare College, Cambridge, to read Asian and Middle Eastern studies — Chinese.
His brother, who was head boy at the school, gained A*s in history (early modern) and religious studies and an A in maths and will read philosophy, politics and economics at Warwick University.
They said that they were surprised to achieve exactly the same grades, but ‘absolutely delighted’.
Also celebrating was Jenni Greenfield who notched up four A*s at A-level. Jenni, from Bramhope, who plans to read maths at Warwick University, achieved A*s in chemistry, economics, maths and further maths.
She said: “I was hoping to do well but I couldn’t believe it when I saw all the A*s. It was pretty surreal!”
A third of students at GSAL achieved the top grades of A*/A in this year’s A-level examinations.
Some 70 students picked up these coveted grades with 13 scooping all A*s. Of these, seven notched up four A*s each and a further six celebrated with 3 A*s apiece.
More than half the cohort — 56 per cent — achieved a minimum of ABB grades.
