The twins' excellent achievements were reported by various Chinese local newspapers after the results of the national school-leaving examination were released yesterday, 8 June.

Because both of their parents are dentists, the duo have been interested in dentistry and medicine since young.

According to China Press, the sisters said they want to pursue their tertiary education at local universities.

Elder sister Emilia's first choice is medicine and her second is dentistry, while younger sister Elena's first choice is dentistry and second is medicine.

Speaking to the media, the sisters said their eldest brother, who also graduated from SMJK Jit Sin, is currently studying dentistry at a private university

They said that although their parents' profession has had an effect on them from a young age, it is their wish and interest to pursue further studies in healthcare, stressing that they were not forced by their parents.

According to Sin Chew Daily, the duo said although they studied in the same schools since childhood, there is no competition between them. Instead, they would complement each other by studying and doing homework together.
