    My mum gave me 200 quid for my degree

    I'm considered lucky as my mum said I would get £10 per C and £20 per B and so on . I got 4B and 7C grades . I'm happy and I had no pressure as my mum said she would be proud of me regardless so I didn't revise and got above my target for everything as I was predicted D grades from ks2 results. So my teachers were happy , my mum was happy and most of all I was happy yay
    Personally, I'd feel a bit guilty if I was to receive so much money for just a few Bs and predominantly Cs.

    I didn't get any money but I was allowed to go and pick something as a treat. So I guess my reward for my results was a new coat lol

    Well yeah but my mum is very generous and caring and only looks for my best interests at stake plus I'm using it for equipment for next year. I go to a low performing school so what I got was considered above average and also the new system that measures Progress makes me look a lot better in terms of points and stuff . I shocked everyone as I failed most of my mocks!

    I have £250 but only because I got into my Sixth Form that required high grades that I never expected.
    if we're speaking in pounds, i got 300 (i/gcse results)

    I just got a "you did really well" and that was it

    I just upgraded from a samsung to an iphone )
