There was a triple celebration at Lagan College in south Belfast where triplets Nancy, Hannah and Jack Eaton received exactly the same results – two Bs and a C.
Nancy got her grades in English, politics and French and is planning to take a year out before going on to Queen’s University Belfast to study global politics, while her sister Hannah took sociology, media studies and health and social care, and is hoping to study nursing.
Jack got his grades in software systems, media studies and business studies and is planning to go on to study software engineering at Liverpool John Moores University.
