Identical twins, Ianisha and Tanisha Lawrence have both received identical university offers to study Sociology at top Russell Group universities. The twin sisters joined Sir George Monoux Sixth Form College after achieving impressive GCSE results, including a combined 11 A*-A grades! The former Park View Academy pupils are currently studying the same A Levels, in English Language & Literature, Psychology and Sociology. The twins have received offers from London School Of Economics (LSE), The University Of Warwick, Loughborough University, City University or Brunel University.
Born just two minutes apart, the sisters have always had shared life ambitions to become social scientists. Ianisha said,“I’ve always been fascinated by why there is so much inequality and human suffering in the world. Studying Sociology allows us to tackle human problems, challenge discrimination and contest stereotypes.”
Ianisha and Tanisha are now working hard in preparation for their summer examinations. Tanisha said, “We’re really enjoying studying the same subjects together at College. We learn together, we revise together, help each other and can confide in each other”.
The Director Of Tutorial and University Progression at Sir George Monoux Sixth Form College, said
“Huge congratulations to Ianisha and Tanisha for receiving top university offers! Both students are outstanding and have worked incredibly hard; they truly deserve this. Their success reflects the fantastic offers that we have been seeing across the college; with offers coming in from almost every Russell Group university so far.”
