    he's not:p:

    I got my tie for getting three As at A2, but I've never actually worn it:eek:

    I prefer my special silver one though

    I think its £10 if you share the prize with someone (for year 11 anyway). I have scammed £560 already

    we had a great one where those who did no work, dicked about and eventually failed all their subjects got to meet neil jenkins, whereas those who worked hard and consistently got nothing.
    Good incentive really - dont do any work and you get a treat, work hard and you dont - no lose situation for those lazy ones...
    I think your tie thing, if a little corny, is a good idea
