    I'm twin to a high achieving sister who always beats me (at everything.) I got 4 a * and 6 a but she got straight a* and it's rather awkward when people ask our results and having to celebrate with her. I was hoping for once the tables might be turned, but evidently not. Soooo basically does anyone have any experience of this/ tips of how to cope???

    I always thought of myself as the more successful out of my sister and I, that was until I had to beg her to assemble my shelf.

    Life has a funny way of reaching equilibrium.

    "I'll have three years of work experience by the time you graduate "
    Best retort ever.

    Yup I got a twin sister and I got 3a*, 3a, 2b, 1c and 1d. My twin sister got 6a*, 3a and 1b. Tbh I got a* in all three subjects i want to do so I don't really care, I admit it is a bit awkward when relatives ask for our results but you can't get down about it and focus on your a level studies and get the best results you can get.

    Work hard and beat her in Alevels and whatever uni you apply to
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
