Bit of a waste of a front page though when you consider what's happening in the world at the moment. pity they wern't twins going to the same college - apparently some guy left a trust fund in his will for twins going to the same college in the same year. (This could well be an old dons' tale but who knows...)

Don't know, but there are the O2 twins at Cambridge (not sure what college though), not to mention our anatomy demonstrator twins

the o2 twins are here??

there's a guy in my year at the same college doing med (all his siblings (quite a few) are doing medicine) and he has an identical twin who was rejected from another college (which I won't mention). If he had been pooled our dos would have taken him right away (one older brother is already at Magdalene) but they wouldn't. Tis a shame, cos the twin we've got is probably the best in our year.

I am a triplet(2 girls and a boy) both me and my sister have been offered places at two different Cambridge colleges (myself to Homerton and my sister to Newham). However my brother was not interested in applying to Cambridge! N e way just thought that I would share that with you all.

Luv Rox xx

I'm reading it as being the pretty annoying characters from O2 adverts?

Yeah I thought that, the whole article seemed to be interested in how much they would pay under top up fees and how much they are going to pay...
...which seems like a piece of human centric journalism that you wouldn't really expect from a broadsheet.

I'm afraid to say I spent about 5 minutes trying to work out which was the most attractive, to no avail considering they're identical triplets and the photo shows so little. hmmm.

Not all that surprising - going to Cam does run in families.

Based on inherited intelligence or the "public school" mentality?

Ah! But they're not all identical triplets....the one studying law isn't identical....the other two are...

Can't have been thinking that much for that 5minutes then!

:rolleyes:

I was impressed that they've all gone for completely different types of subjects too.
