    If you did well in your gcses and got good grades, did your parents buy you anything as a reward / gift? My mum said she'd buy me a £200 ring but never did. (Not that I think I really deserved one, but I don't like being promised something I won't get). I don't think my dad even said well done though. :rolleyes:

    No nothing but I don't care, I also don't expect any for my AS - levels. If my results are good enough for me and I am happy with them then I'm cool.

    I got £400 in the end I think. I was promised a certain amount for different grades and ended up doing much much better than expected!

    I got 2A* and 8A and they knew I was clever but thought i was lazy and never revised and played playstation all day (which I did) and they gave me around £100 and a nice Armani watch

    A-level results day coupled with the fact I told them i didn't apply to uni that year was a different matter though :rolleyes:
