    I got £20 for every pass && then got taken to oxford street to spend it all =D I wasnt expecting anything though, getting decent grades would have been enough for me. Some people's parents go crazy though, I know people who got holidays in America && stuff like that.

    i got £100 but that was mainly because someone in my mum's office was talking about everything she was getting her son for GCSEs and thought i'd feel left out/overlooked or something. She didn't even try and take it back when i explained most of my friends parents offered rewards as a kind of bribe and that normally has to happen before the exams have been sat, win!

    This is not a joke.
    For every A i got my mum said i can have £500!
    She must of thought i was retarded or something, she said she thought it was a safe bet! £2000 later and i have a gap year coming up travelling the world, (£2000 will help, but not for a year).
    4 is crap for TSR i know but with the school i went to that was classed as really good,then i met TSR and realised i was clearly stupid lol
    Shame there was no A* bonus! lol

    I had about £500.

    I was given a certain amount of money for each grade I achieved. I remember that if I got an A in English or Maths it was £50. An A in R.E, however, was worth less (about £20).

    It caused a bit of an argument in my family for a while about whether it was the 'right' thing to do. It so was.

    I got AAA at A-level, but I didn't get anything for that.

    I did my french two years early and got an A*, and my grandma sent me £20 and a bag of chocolates!! :P I got my maths result this week - A*, so my parents said we could go out for a meal tonight, although it is my mums birthday in a few days so it's a joint celebration! But no, I don't expect anything when I get the rest of my results, just a Well Done will be enough for me!!

    My parents took me out to dinner... One of my brother's friends was predicted Bs and Cs so his parents promised him £100 for every A he got. Turns out he was just lazy and in the end they had to fork out £1100!!

    Currently preparing to sit Gcse Exam in June 2010. Parents have promised a while ago that i would receive 30 Pounds for each A*. Im aiming for all A*s, and im taking 9 Gcse, so do the math 270 If i get 9, which i doubt.

    I reckon i'll end up with 7 A*s and 100 pounds .. Meh . My parents are very kind and usually get things for me, but i tend not to take advantage of it xD.

    I got some new walking boots from my parents :awesome:
    That probably works out to about 5 or 6 quid per A*.

    No, they just praised me (even though my results were hardly great), which is probably better than material gratification, why produce synthetic reward for work when simple interactions will do.

    My dad randomly came up to me one night and said, depending on the grade you get depends on how much money we'll give you...
    £50 - A*
    £40 - A
    £30 - B
    £10 - C
    I think...
    but on the day of my results when he came home from work, he gave me card with £300 in it, a box of chocs and a bottle of cava. Bless him, and i was really grateful!

    I got a £700 laptop, but to be fair, that was to take me all the way through Sixth Form and uni, so it wasn't just a GCSE present
    Still awesome though!

    :yes: :ditto: a laptop for sixth form

    and earrings, money and a card for AS levels
