    I dont get anything

    My parents have this kind of rule where they never put any pressure at all on me or my brother to get certain grades, and in return we don't get rewarded for good results.

    I think that is actually quite a good deal; it just feels like a shame because i am predicited really good grades so i could have had something good lol...
    You will have something good (and a fair bit more valuable than a couple of hundred quid) - decent GCSE results!

    I had nothing for mine (A*A*A*A*A*AAAAAB). I remember people in my year complaining because they were "only" getting £10 per A* compared to others who were getting £20. I don't take issue with people getting money (if that's what they need to work hard, that's what they need) but I really do loathe ungrateful people.

    I don't get money for mine but my dad (who is a bit out of touch with my schoolwork etc.) promised me a cocktail in the OXO tower if I 'pass a GCSE'. I didn't have the heart to tell him that I will be passing all my GCSEs (unless it all goes terribly well) and that isn't so much of an incentive.

    ive bought myself a psp that im not allowed to play until my last exam and ive just bought another year of live so thats kinda my reward. Im also trying to get a iPod Touch 32gb through those refferal sites. Got my iPod Video 2 years ago from that so i thought i might as well get a new ipod from there now. I try not to get money off of my parents and try and earn stuff rather than just ask for stuff.

    Nothing! My muma and dada just said that they'll take me out for a nice family meal on results day, regardless of how well I've done. I prefer it this way because I know how well I've done will be because I've put in the hard work to get the grades, not because I want to get a few hundred pounds from my parents. Personal satisfaction is priceless.

    I am in desperate need of a new room so my mum has set a target (that i dont know) of how many As - or A*s if she's feeling mean - that i need to acheive in order to get a new room

    Its a way of motivating me to revise as i am lazy

    And since no one in my family really stuck around for GCSEs (besides my cousins and me) its a way of getting me to turn up

    Quite good I think - IKEA here i come !! hopefully

    also i will probably get cards - i hope

    My Mum and Dad said nothing--so I bought myself a Nintendo DS but am not allowed to play Animal Crossing until June 20th (last exam).

    It's often a surprise though--they gave me a phone for my A* in ICT last year.

    :-D

    If I get enough grades for a '50% off tuition fees' scholarship, my parents are putting me through boarding school. . Which is really lovely of them, since the tuition fees are only about a quarter of the boarding fees anyway. So really, I'm only saving them 1/8 of the money, but ho-hum.
    Oh, and a car when I pass my driving test next year, but that's a birthday-Christmas-exams gift, and a necessity so I can actually make it home some weekends.

    slightly off topic, but how do you actually get people to click on your site?
