Mine say well done and are pleased with me but I don't believe in the whole parents going OTT and paying you money for getting good grades etc. [as some of my friends get] I think it's ridiculous.
I'm doing MY gcse's now, for ME, nobody else.
It's my future that they affect so I think being bribed into doing well's is stupid.
Usually they say 'well done' and congratulate me a bit! Nothing special...
I don't know about GCSEs. I doubt they'll give me money or anything. My Dad says he'll buy me a present if I get an 'A' in Maths (I'm dreadful at Maths, so this is unlikely). The most I'll get for the rest of my GCSEs will probably be a meal out or something like that.
My Grandparents do give me money, but that's a different matter.
Yeah, people complaining over B's is annoying. Lower ability people spend two years struggling to get a C so people should be chuffed with what they got unless they didnt put work in, and if they didnt its only their own fault.
I got 9A* 2 A and and my parents were really pleased. they put it behind them before dinner lol.
how do you expect them to react though?
My parents normally say 'well done' if I get good grades, but then go way OTT when I get bad grades. Like, in my politics module in January I got a U, and they signed me up for revision classes even though it wasn't entirely my fault (my teacher had been off for about two months before the college found a substitute, so we were really behind and had to skip over a lot, and then I was really ill when I took the exam)
But when my sister got a U and 2 E's in her A2s, they were just like, 'That's all we expected, but if you get that we'll be very disappointed' to me.
I guess it's normal for parents to focus on the bad stuff instead of the good or something.
