Twins who scored identical marks in Class 12 CBSE examination
Noida : The results for CBSE Board Examinations for Class 12 have been declared on the official website of the board. In an interesting note, twin sisters who look alike have scored the same marks in the CBSE Class 12 exams. Meet Manasi and Manya, residents of Noida near Delhi, who scored 95.8 per cent each in the board exams.
The twin sisters used to study in Aster Public School in Greater Noida. They scored 98 in English and Computer Science, and 95 each in Physics, Chemistry and Physical Education.
"Everybody remembers us for identical looks and it's only our names that differentiate us. We were confident about scoring well but were not hoping to score identical marks. When we analysed our performance after the exams, we were hoping Manya would score more," Manasi told news agency PTI.
Both the sisters wish to become an engineer and are waiting to appear in the IIT JEE examination. The competitive examination has been postponed till September due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic lockdowns.
"I read two years ago about identical twins scoring identical marks. But then I thought it was too much of a coincidence. Still, can't believe we scored exactly the same as well," Manya said.
She said while both competed fiercely, they have never scored exactly the same before.
"There was always a healthy competition between the two of us and it was neck-to-neck. However, we had command on different subjects. I am better at Chemistry while Manasi has better command on Physics," she said.
