Paula and Peter Imafidon broke world records when they passed A-Level maths at the age of seven.

And today, the nine-year-old twins will add to their list of achievements when they become the youngest ever pupils in Britain to start secondary school.

Having won places at 12 top secondary schools, they will join other nervous pupils and parents across the country waiting to find out whether they have offers for their chosen schools.

Councils will send out 540,000 letters to parents today – known as ‘national offer day’ – with details of which schools have accepted their children.

Last year, almost one in six 10 and 11-year-olds missed out on their top choice. Of the 546,744 pupils aged 11 allocated places at secondary schools, nearly 92,000 failed to get their preferred option.

This year, that figure is likely to have climbed to almost 100,000 pupils.

Peter and Paula, from Waltham Forest, London, dubbed the ‘wonder twins’, hit the headlines when they set three world records by passing A and AS-level maths papers aged seven.

They became the youngest candidates ever to pass an A-level maths paper, the youngest school pupils to pass the A-level maths paper and the youngest ever twins to achieve this level in maths 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 exams.

Their father Chris Imafidon said: ‘We’re delighted with the progress they have made.’

Last week, research by the Daily Mail revealed that one in every six pupils will miss out on a place at their chosen state secondary school.

Almost 100,000 pupils are likely to be disappointed when the allocated places are announced today.
