Louise and Stephen Marino Oléon to have several things in common: their name, date of birth and container "S" they are about to spend together: the bachelor is a family affair for these triplets "solidarity" in revisions in life.
At first sight, nothing to suggest that the three siblings were born just minutes apart, there is a little over 18 years in Tours. Marin is great athleticism to wavy hair. Etienne, a little less big and curly. Louise and her pretty face sharing at most a family resemblance to his brothers.
"We're really supportive," says Marino. "To prepare, we review the progress on our own, but we did exercises together, all three and we help each other to correct."
Stephen, the "elder" is keyed in math, Marin SVT (Life Sciences and Earth), Louise in physics and chemistry. The main subjects for a science graduate.
Then, about an hour a day "at least", they find themselves around a table in the family home near Tours for a session of "tutoring" fraternal where each helps the other in his field of choice.
"It's more fun to review like this," says Louise. "Sometimes it annoys me, Stephen quickly understand the math, so it annoys me," she enjoys.
Another advantage is that students are placed alphabetically in the exam rooms, "we will be sitting next to one another, or one behind the other, it is rather reassuring," said the young daughter.
Rivalry between brothers and sisters, to mention a possible example? Not at all, they shout in unison. "I'm happy for them if they have a good score, but we are not rivals," said Etienne.
"Yes, when I was in college, I used to work in my area to get a better score," admitted Marino. "Not anymore, it has matured."
With averages between 12 and 14, three high school students Jean Monnet Played-les-Tours, educated in separate classes, are also less worried about their chances of success.
Their math teacher mom, Karen Oléon especially fears that one of the three fails. "They spent the whole driver's license, only one had it. So we did not dare to celebrate," recalls she.
But she remains confident. "Since they are small, they help each other on special occasions, whether to revise or parents ... to hide a mistake," she joked.
The post-bac? Suscribe sailor will sport in college "because you have a degree," but dreams of becoming a professional footballer. He trains every day at FC Towers. Louise and Stephen have applied to several engineering schools around the country.
So, one should stay in Marin fold family, with his younger brother aged 14, Alec. "We will live apart for the first time with Louise and Stephen. In fact, we do not really realize," he notes.
For now, the goal of a pan "third power" for these children is emerging as an engineer and math teacher. By Thursday, they will rub shoulders in the examination room for the test philosophy.
With secret codes cheat between brothers and sisters? "We're going to say anything about it," Marino loose, deceptively serious, while the siblings from a burst of laughter.
