Jai Hind College at Churchgate had 14 reasons to celebrate Tuesday’s HSC results.
In a happy coincidence, seven pairs of twins scored well in the Class 12 exams. What’s more? Each pair scored nearly identical marks. Six of the pairs were from commerce.
Principal Ashok Wadia said the college has over the years had many twins on their rolls, but this is the first time they were all in the same stream. “I do not understand the reason, but we have observed siblings in the same class benefit from each other and this reflects in their grades.”
Separated by four minutes at birth, twins Rhea and Raashi Jethani’s scores were just 0.3% apart.
“I secured 75.2% and Rhea got 74.9%. We have always studied together, but now we will pursue different careers,” said Raashi. Rhea wants to study management, while Raashi said she wants to pursue mass media.
Samay and Shikhar Seth were in the same class and want to continue studying together.

They scored 80 % and 79.85% respectively. “We are happy with our results. We both plan to do MBA (Master of Business Administration),” said Samay.
Sisters Kajal and Kiran Pallathery even wrote the exams seated in the same classroom at the exam centre. “As our initials are the same, we end up in the same exam centres,” said Kajal.
The sisters have been inseparable since school. “We were in different grades only in classes 4 and 5,” Kajal said. They want to continue studying together, as both plan to take a company secretary course.
“We scored 73.03% and 79.69%, I hope we get into in the same college as I cannot imagine life without my sister,” said Kajal. Brother-sister pair from Tardeo, Sagar and Disha Changwani, said it was a great having a sibling to share the board exams with.
“We both helped each other. I guided Sagar in organisation commerce, he helped me with economics,” said Disha. The twins have decided to take different fields.
Linda and Lara Borges notched 90.61% and 86.46%; Anish and Aniruddha Kothari scored 89.53% and 87.23%.
The college has a seventh pair passing out, but they were not in the same stream. Around 1,200 children from Jai Hind wrote the exams.
