Twins looking identical. Not surprising, isn't it? But twins scoring identical scores in examinations is something rare. Mumbai twins Rohan and Rahul Chembakasserill achieved this rare feat when they scored an identical percentage of 96.5 in the Class 12 ISC examinations.
"They don't just look exactly the same but have same habits too. They always fall ill together and feel hungry at the same time but scoring exactly the same marks has also taken us by surprise," their mother Sonal Chembakasseril told PTI over the phone from Mumbai.
"Rohan and Rahul have studied together in school. They even do their revisions together at home," she added.
The elated duo who studied at Jasudben M L School in Mumbai's Khar area plan to pursue a career in Science.
The Council for the Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE) had last week declared the results for the Class 12 and Class 10 exams with girls once again bettering boys in overall scores and 64 students getting more than 99 per cent.
While 49 students got more than 99 per cent in the Class 12 exam, 15 students scored more than 99 per cent in the Class 10 exam. This year, the top score of 99.5 per cent in class 12 was bagged by seven students from across the country. The second position of 99.25 per cent was shared by 17 students. The third highest score was 99 per cent, bagged by 25 students.
