Triplet girls studying at a Cornish college are heading for Cambridge University.

Truro College announced on Thursday morning that the 18-year-old sisters have received the A level results required for entry to three separate Cambridge colleges.

Students Lil, Helen and Kate Armstrong all applied to several universities looking for their course choices, it was a coincidence that they had all applied to Cambridge.

Lil will be studying medicine at Selwyn College. She said:

"I am extremely excited about going to Cambridge and also a little nervous, but at least my sisters will be there for support"

Helen will be studying Law at Corpus Christie College. She said:

"I'm speechless - it's just a great relief to finally know we're all going."

Kate will be studying Natural Sciences at Trinity College. She said:

"I'm amazed and delighted that we have all achieved these grades which would not have been possible without the excellent staff at Richard Lander School and Truro College."

They admit they enjoy each others company much more now. It was 'tedious' at secondary school because they were always in the same class but at College they have enjoyed the individuality of being in separate lectures. They have enjoyed meeting for lunch at College.

"We have got closer the more time we spent apart" Helen Armstrong.

Helen and Kate found their first interviews for university "horrible" and thought they weren't going to be successful. The second interview gave them a little more hope. Lil thought her interviews were great!

The girls went to Richard Lander school where they all achieved A grades in their GCSE's.
