    I was originally promised £50 per A grade £20 per B grade from my granddad, but he found out I was gay at the time and chose not to talk to me for a year or so... so I didn't get anything. :dontknow: I did get a 'well done' from my mum though, which was more than enough.

    After my GCSE results day....my mam got me the internet

    Yes folks, that's right, I'm old. I got the internet for the first time when I was 16. And it was dial-up costing 1p per minute. Back in the day before it was even flat rate pay-monthly dial-up, let alone broadband!

    I got like 100 per A*, and ended up with 11 A*s and an A overall
    And they never expected that.. haha!
    Although, they weren't happy with the A once they knew I was capable of the A*s..
    Then I got a remark and 2 months later.. 12 A*s
    (didn't get more money that time though..)

    I didn't get anything. My dad always says that I should study because I want to, and that if I get good grades it's something that affects me, not my parents.

    My parents don't see the point in paying for good exam results because the better they are, the more likely my sisters and I are to go to university, which the parentals will most likely have to fund heavily...:cool:

    I received money for good results, but did not know about this until they were published, so it couldn't act as some type of bribe or incentive.
