There was double joy for several sets of twins who picked up their GCSE results at Barnet and Haringey schools this year.

All-girls grammar Henrietta Barnett School, in Central Square, Hampstead Garden Suburb, celebrated top results from two sets of twins yesterday.

Anuradha and Sharmila Hall were hit by illness and covered in itchy spots while sitting their exams after both catching chickenpox.

But the 16-year-old sisters from Wembley battled through their ailments and came away with 13 As between them.

Tara and Naomi Kilcoyne, another set of Henrietta Barnett twins, both celebrated straight A*s in 21 subjects between them.
