IDENTICAL twins Eden and Keir McGovern picked up 21 A* grades between them at the St Thomas More RC Academy in North Shields.

Eden said she was “really happy” to gain 11 A*s, while her sister Keir said she was “ecstatic” to get ten A*s and an A as she thought her exams had gone “really bad”.

Eden wants to become a doctor and is staying on to study biology, chemistry, maths and physics at A-level. Keir is hoping A-levels in maths, physics, English literature and history will help her aspire to a career in law.

Fellow pupil Kirsty Jones walked away with ten A*s and one A.

The 16-year-old, of Tynemouth, said: “I was really, really pleased, but it was a bit of a shock as well because I didn’t think I had done that well.”

Also collecting ten A*s and an A was Thomas Hodgson, of Wallsend.

The 16-year-old said: “I was really happy. It was better than I had expected.”

Thomas hopes to train to be an actuary and will take maths, further maths, physics and German at A-level.

Katie Smith, of Wallsend, got eight A*s and three As.

“I’m just so happy,” the 16-year-old said. “It was better than I had expected.”

Katie is staying on in sixth form to take English literature, history, psychology and ethics and philosophy.
