    I got some money, but that wasn't my motivation for doing well.

    Not my parents, but my grandparents got me a watch and a necklace.

    I went to Reading Festival on the day I got my GCSE results (seems ages ago now), and my parents decided before I left I didn't have to pay them back for the tickets, which was nice.

    When I got my AS results and told my dad who was waiting in the car he went a bit hyper and emptied his wallet in my hands :tongue: It had £40 in it, so I suppose I was rewarded with £10 per A xD

    You got £1100 for GCSEs?!

    Yeah.. lol
    In my family education is unheard of, except for my parents..
    My cousins all totally wasted their school years and are all unemployed in their 20s..
    so getting the grades I did was seen as impossible.. Hence massive reward..
    Plus, I'm the eldest and therefore slightly spoilt xP

    Hahaha wheyyy *high 5* I didn't want you thinking I'm spoiled cuz I'm nottt (a) tbh the amount Asian parents tell their kids off...we deserve to be indulged! :p:
    Not true to some extent. I'm asian but my parents are very loving. I don't get yelled but they do give me the 'i'm so disappointed vibe' that I HAVE to do well or I'll feel really miserable I disappointed them.

    Anyway, I don't usually get presents for grades. I have everything I want already, and my parents pay for everything including my college and university fees, transport and gives me a moderate amount of money for spending. (different to the culture here I guess but I will repay them in the future!) so money doesn't serve as a motivator.
