A MUM and dad had three reasons to be proud as punch after her triplet sons enjoyed success in their A-levels.
George, Wilf and Finn Mort, 18, excelled in their A-levels at Ysgol Dinas Bran, Llangollen.
The boys live with parents Jo and Ralph, both 50, on Abbey Road in the town.
George got five A* grades in the sciences, achieving grades in chemistry, ICT, maths, further maths and physics.
He has already been accepted to study computing at Jesus College, Cambridge.
He said: “I’m really pleased. It’s just happened and it’s a real surprise.
“I’m keen to do anything to do with computers, whether it’s academic or if I go into programming.”
He added that the family would be taking a break with a trip to France in a week, before the boys return to prepare for university.
Wilf earned an A* in English literature, and three As in history, religious education and drama.
He will go on to study English literature at Durham University.
Wilf said: “We’ve all done exceedingly well.
“We’re all doing completely different things and I’m ecstatic about my own results.”
Finn achieved two Bs in psychology and media and two Cs in biology and music.
He plans to go to Herriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, where he will study psychology.
He said: “I did AS psychology at our pastoral year 11 and I thought it quite an exciting subject and it’s turned out to be something that interests me.
“We were all fairly similar when we were younger, but as we’ve grown older, the differences have increased since then.
“I think that comes from the freedom for us to do what we wanted, and the credit for that goes to our mum.”
Jo described each of her sons as talented young men, with different interests.
She said: “George is like his dad – he’s a mathematical thinker and he’s very determined. He’s a very humble guy.
“Wilf was always very creative, he’s been involved in lots of drama in Llangollen and he’s always been a gifted writer.
“And Finn was really, really interested in AS psychology and he’s always been very musical as well.”
She added: “They’re good lads – if we’d had to have to keep them going, it would have been impossible. 
“They’ve all done it under their own steam.”
Dad Ralph added: “We’re very proud of them. They’ve done very well.”
