    BOOOO

    i get ema
    i dont need it. it pays my iphone bill and buys me clothes.
    you wouldnt be boooing if you got it. i think its a ******* stupid idea, taxing people to give it to kids to go to school that theyl go to anyway if they have any potential at all, but if others are getting it il be damned if im going to say "i dont need this, keep it"

    For getting the work done on time, having good attendance and behaving well.

    i dont think i EVER handed a piece of work in on time since i joined my school in year 9......come to think of it, i think the same can be said from about year 5 onwards :s:

    i still got my bonuses though :p:


    **** you EMA haters - i get a massive means tested grant, a bigger student loan AND a bursary from my uni, for the same reasons i got EMA :p: :p: :p:

    it completely depends on your college/sixth form and when they process the bonus.

    it normally comes after the january exams.

    Although there are people who spent ema and bonuses on crap. My friend hasn't spent a single of her bonuses since we begun college. She's been saving it all. That means she's got... 400 quid saved up that she said she's saving for uni. She also saves her ema I think it's 10 pounds a week.

    She has good self-discipline, unlike me

    The bitterness. It excites me.

    I will never understand why I never got EMA because my parents had decent jobs, yet the half the people on EMA's parents sit at home all day thinking of more extravagant benefits to claim.

    oh, wait....Madness! :eek: :eek3: :eek:

    Because my parents are ill and so can't work full time.


    EDIT
    I'm probably not going to get my EMA bonus! Don't even want it. Don't need it. If I get it I think I'll give half of it to charity

    Our school have told us that no one will receive their EMA Bonus until all January exams are finished, so i'm guessing next Friday (5th) at latest?

    If anyone doesn't need their EMA bonus (or weekly payments), PM me and I'll give you my bank details so you can set-up standing payments. I really could do with the extra money.. :cry:

    No, but some people may go to college just to get the EMA, so this weeds those people out.
    doesn't weed anybody out.

    the people who dont behave still get standard EMA.

    i have a cd that plays calming sounds..


    seriously though, if we're elidgeble for 'free money' then why shouldn't we get it. i use it to fill my car with petrol so i can get to and from school, use it for materials for school, use it for food.

    And before anyone says about getting a job. I have one, my EMA goes into a seperate account which I only use for school stuff. I pay my phonebill from money that I earn.
