Twins score same success

Have your say

Identical twins have graduated with the same degree after scoring the same marks – and now they are both starting their careers at the same firm.

Hollie and Mel Walker, 22, from Eaglescliffe in Teesside, have achieved first class honours in law at Northumbria University.

They are also celebrating awards for achieving the highest grades in employment law, scoring identical marks despite answering different questions.

Mel said: “It’s amazing because we’ve been there all the way, pushing each other.”

Both will now start training contracts at Newcastle commercial law firm Ward Hadaway.
