The teachers are having a hard time distinguishing one student from another, and sometimes, they mistakenly punish the wrong students

"We get confused about who was right and who was wrong. Then we get confused and even some times we end up punishing the wrong one too," one teacher told Newsflare.

However, the teachers admit that it is also double the fun to teach twins in the classrooms

India-based news site ETV Bharat reported that the students will throw tantrums if they are separated from their siblings.

Some twins will help each other in answering questions during lessons, some will exchange study notes.

There are about 150 pairs of school-aged twins in Sirkazhi

One of the school principals said residents have become accustomed to the prevalence of twins in town, reported The Hindu.

Many of the twins in the town have made pranking their teachers a hobby

One of these prankster pairs, KM Prithyanka and KM Priyanka, attend another school - Vivekandanda Matriculation High School - which has 53 pairs of twins.

"When we were in primary classes, teachers used to make us sit in different sections to identify us correctly," Prithyanka related.

"However, we fussed and threw tantrums until we were allowed to sit together. Now, we play pranks on everyone."

The now-Grade 12 twins said they scored identical marks, 373, in Grade 10.

"We sat in different halls but scored the same marks. It is called a twin connection," Prithyanka added.
