    I got money for A levels. My older brother wasn't very good academically, so my dad offered him money for his results. In the end he didn't make much money out of it (For each exam, C or above was +money, D or below was -money). So it came round to my turn to do A levels and my dad decided to keep the same rules to be fair, and I ended up making 600 pounds. Bought a Martin acoustic guitar so I had something to keep with me that actually meant something (money in itself is fairly pointless).

    I also got a load of travelling equipment for my gap year as a graduation present, which I wasn't expecting at all. Not sure if that really counts as a reward for good results though. It was more of a general passing a milestone gift.


    My dad always has preferred to give a few big worthwhile presents at significant times rather than giving me and my brother pocket money. Some people may see it as being spoilt, but then again the people whose parents paid for driving lessons + car got a lot more than my dad gave to me. It's up to parents how they want to distribute their money, no point judging the kids for that.

    No. I don't see why they should, either.

    And I find it's always the kids who whinge about EMA who get a couple of hundred quid reward for their results...

    I knew someone who was getting paid £100 per A* for their GCSES

    I got a bottle of champagne for my A-level results, but that's about it. My birthday's always around results day (is on results day this year in fact) which takes out some of the present-receiving factor

    My mum says well done, that is about it. Surely the fact you got a good grade is a reward itself.

    I'm going out for (hopefully) a celebration meal with family, then they'll go halves with me on the cost of a meal with my friends.

    Sort of. I got a sewing machine for my GCSEs (which were good for my school). I got nothing for my AS and A levels, but I got a meal when I got into Uni this year.

    I got £20 and told to go and have a nice meal when I got 6 and a half A*s, 2 and a half As, and B at GCSE, plus an A at an AS level (did it at high school).

    Some people I know got far, far too much for their results.
