“ This is not the first time we topped the exams together. We have done the same in our hometown Saharanpur as well,” Sonali said.
They also topped their high school and higher secondary exams. “We even got the same percentage percentage in our CBSE Class X exams,” Rupali added.
Both sisters credited their success to their hard work and the support and guidance of their parents. “Since our parents are principals of private schools back home, they egged us on to excel in studies,” they said.
The twins, who are simultaneously pursuing a company secretary course, plan to pursue an MBA after graduation.
The Jain sisters love to sing and dance. They are trained in folk dance and Kathak. Both love to travel and have visited many places in the country. “ We love to do everything together. We are our best friends,” Rupali said.

The twins said the Saraswati Nivas hostel near DU's North Campus was a home away from home. They thanked their hostel- mates for taking care of them during their exams as both of them had fallen ill.
Hostel director Mahesh Sharma said: “ All of us are proud of their success.” The twins want to repeat their success story and want to stay friends forever.
