Paula and Peter Imafidon, dubbed “The Wonder Twins” are the Youngest High School students in U.K. History! Damn, don’t they make you feel completely inferior?

no, because I can still beat their ass in the game of life! But seriously, they make me feel like a mental midget. But, their parents have super eggs and super sperm, because it is not just the twins. The rest of the family is brilliant as well.
The ‘Wonder Twins’ are set to enter secondary school at 9

A PAIR of nine-year-old twins are today set to become the youngest pupils to be admitted to a secondary school.
Paula and Peter Imafidon already broke world records when they passed A/AS-level mathematics papers at the age of seven.
Peter and Paula, from Waltham Forest, London, attend an ordinary state primary school but have already received provisional offers from more than 12 leading secondary schools.
Dubbed the “Wonder Twins”, they hit the headlines when they set three world records by passing A-level and AS-level maths papers at the age of seven.
They became the youngest candidates ever to pass an A-level maths paper and the youngest twins to achieve this level in mathematics anywhere in the world.
A year later they took and passed the University of Cambridge’s Advanced Mathematics (FAM) paper, becoming the youngest students ever to pass the rigorous examinations.
The twins, who take part in the Excellence in Education programme for inner-city children, have also co-authored a book with their primary school classmates – with proceeds going to charities and their school.
Their father, Chris Imafidon, said: “We’re delighted with the progress they have made.”
He said the youngsters would be fine at secondary school, despite the age difference with their peers, adding: “Because they are twins they have each other.”
The twins’ three sisters also took part in the Excellence in Education Programme, which works to develop children from socially disadvantaged backgrounds.
Their older sister Samantha, now 12, passed two GCSEs in mathematics and statistics at the age of six and their eldest sister, Anne-Marie, now 20, was the youngest girl ever to pass A-level computing, at 13. Their other sister, Christiana, 17, is the youngest schoolgirl ever to study at undergraduate level in any British university, entering at the age of 11.
Now that is a family to really be proud of. But, at the same time, there must be a lot of pressure, because you don’t want to be the dumb kid. But, it’s nice to know Britain has some Black Doogie Howsers running around.
Soon, one of them really will be the Prime Minister. Then what will you say?
