Extraordinarily, lots of my friends get rewards for their AS-levels in terms of money/other material goods. One perosn gets £50 per pass, another (slightly more academic) a new pair of jeans per A grade, another gets a car?
Anybody else get these marvy prizes?
I get 50 quid an A
I am dyslexic and have to work stupidly hard though but i can see why my parents do it - it works i revise none stop mainly because i want to get onto a degree course but also because i dotn have a job (got sacked) and dont get pocket money and never have.... its also in cheque form and my money goes into my nbank which i cant spend until i go to uni. (which i have to pay for anyway so its kind of not so OTT)
For my GCSEs I got like £120 I think. I was only expecting like £50 maybe, haha. :| Some of my friends got twice that though.
Don't know if I'll get anything this year, haven't seen my dad yet. My dad hardly ever gives me money though so he probably will.
After I'd finished taking all my exams, when my mum was giving me a lift somewhere, I jokingly asked "can I have £100 if I get straight A's" and she replied in a serious manner "ok then". I don't think she recalls this conversation and I haven't mentioned it yet, but I wonder how she would react if I did ask.
I probably won't because I don't believe in bribes (even though she bribed my brother for his year 9 SATS results) and I don't really need incentives to work hard.
Me too. I know of someone who for every A* at GCSE above 5 A*s she got, she got £1000.
I get rewarded for each grade, but I know that I would have worked for them anyway, but it will be nice to have some spending money for next year; I intend to go to Singapore with it! The main reason for my parents choosing to do it, is so my brother works hard, once he sees that I've been rewarded for the hard work too! I think it is a good idea, if your parents can afford it. If I knew my parents couldn't, I wouldn't take the money.
I don't get rewards, as incentives to work because my parents know that what I care about is doing the best of my ability. However, after my GCSEs they gave me a brand new laptop. You could say that sounds silly because I didn't have to work for it, it wasn't to encourage me because I didn't know about it, but really my results were just an excuse I think, because the computer I had been using was on its last legs!
i got a RADO
my mum has style!! haha
Well, since I got the grades, they'll be supporting me financially at uni..
Psh, I get jack all! :P I remember at GCSE level I got all A*-B's, and didn't get anything... and yet my friend who got Cs and Ds got like, £1000 or something.
I am not expecting anything from my parents for my GCSEs, maybe from relatives but definitely not from parents.
I got a new phone for my birthday which didn't happen to arrive through the post until after the GCSEs. Does that count?
My mum is making some home made apple pies for my results/birthday.
Does that count as a reward.
I get nothing, a pat on the back, and a meal of my choice...oh and or GCSEs I got a slab of chocolate with 'Congratulations' on it. Possibly a £5 from hte grandparents, but that is really it. No '£50 per A grade' or 'New jeans for each A grade' etc etc. I'm expected to work hard for my own rewards that I give myself, not what other people give me... Does make me really appreciate what I do get though...
i would happily trade in my watch for that sweet sweet...
