School in India has 28 sets of twins


Seeing double is common at this Indian school, which has 28 sets of twins enrolled in classes.

Teachers at Cramford English Medium High School, located in the city of Chittoor in southern India, struggle to keep their students’ names straight because there are so many twins.

“Some of these twins are identical ones, so teachers are left in the lurch a lot of the time as they can’t tell who’s who,” C Mahesh, the school’s spokesman, told Caters News Agency. “But we have gotten used to these kids.”

He added that while there are a large number of twins — 10 sets of girls, 12 pairs of boys and six sets of fraternal sets — it helps that not all of them are identical.

Administrators first noticed the growing number of twins enrolled at the school, which has 1,020 kids enrolled, a couple of years ago.
