The Twins’ Achievements
Dan and Fred are identical twins.
One day, the counsellor at school called their parents to school. She was starting to see a pattern in the school marks of the twins. A confusing pattern. The confusion was that Fred’s marks were starting to rise up and he was starting to over achieve. On the contrary, Dan’s marks were low and was at risk of repeating the grade he was in.
How could the results of twins be so different? Didn’t they share the same genes? How could they perform differently? Their home, babysitter, school and even class teachers were all the same. Their environment had no difference so where would these changes come from?
