£5 for my results. Which I promptly spent on a nice bottle of wine. Oh well.
I was amazed this year, my gran gave me £50 and my mum gave me £50 too!
I wasn't expecting it in the slightest because normally I get a fiver to spend on chocolate, and a pat on the back. My family has never believed in paying kids to do well in exams, but apparently an exception was made this year.
I got a well done and a "i'm not getting you anything because you get stuff throughout the year" and i went to my friends house and she had champagne, and mum was like, "i dont really go in for that sort of thing". but like, a card or something wouldn't have gone amiss, i got 5 As and a merit on an AEA!
I was given £100 for every C or above i got at AS yesterday... i got 3 A's lol i worked really hard though because i wanted good grades, i would have worked hard even if i wasn't told i would be given the money it was just like a reward for working so hard kind of thing! I got a few cards too, at GCSE i was given the same - £100 for every C or above but double award ones only counted for £100 still lol.
Oh it was my birthday yesterday too so that was a good day! lol
I think I got a CD after GCSEs, but I wouldn't dream of asking for anything now - the other day I worked out how much they've spent on my education (just school fees, excluding extras, music lessons etc), and it was a looot.
So yeh - and theyre about to shell out a whole load more money for me to go to uni, so I'm happy with that really!
you shouldnt get rewards for wanting to do well in life
I got taken out to pizza express for GCSE/As/A levels, which was great as I love that place. My ex was given £1000 per A* then it went down in a sliding scale, he ended up geting £10,000!!! Id feel bad getting that much money from my parents for doing well at school, when Id work hard so I could go to uni anyway
