    I got 9 A*s for GCSE, and I was told off by my parents, saying that if I worked harder I would have got 10 A*s (I had one bad exam, I mistimed the exam and I still got an A). They didn't really say well done, in fact they thought I underperformed.

    Then when I got As for AS, they criticised me saying they weren't high enough, and why I hadn't scored over 90% in each subject.

    I wish I were kidding, but I'm not. . Never even said well done to me.

    My mum took me shopping after my S-Grades. My parents bought me a MacBook for my Highers as my old laptop had broken and I needed a new one for my year at college, and an AllSaints dress for getting into uni.

    Apparently it's Singapore dollars according to earlier posts. Which I've looked up on the currency converter and $40 is £16. So it's not too much really.

    For my GCSEs they had a system of a certain amount of money for each grade but they didn't expect me to do so well so ended up cutting it off at 100 quid :P For A levels i think if they could afford it they would but it's just not possible now

    My parents are generally in a good mood for the rest of the day, which is worth gold to me.
    Even though I have been an underachiever (in comparison to my potential, not to national standards) for the last 4 years, I still do well which is good enough.

    They'll say well done and the family then might spend the evening sharing anecdotes, laughing and generally being merry; as a result of parents good mood rather than the results directly. An evening together with the family like that is nothing special or out of the ordinary, but results day normally just ensures merriment occurs - even if circumstances have left them miserable and grumpy (as so often happens). I'm looking forward to results day this month, my parents have been in a foul mood for a multitude of reasons and it is starting to become a real drain.


    As for money, I heard about other peoples' parents making 'agreements' like that and I don't mind. It's just not the kind of thing that would happen with my family, it's... not the kind of relationship we share. I'd find it really odd if they offered to make a sort of unwritten contract like that. *shrugs*

    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.

    :eek: Just seen your signature - that's where I lived for my first and second years! You're lucky The bar used to be where there's a study space now (I think), it was good there

    To answer the question...I didn't get anything for my results apart from a 'well done', and rightly so.

    They allow me to continue living with them rent-free (this is no joke)

    Whether or not this is a reward is debatable - it will most certainly be my punishment should I miss both my uni offers

    No.
    It can happen.

    My brother got a stupid amount of money for his A-levels. He wasn't doing too well so my grandparents offered him £1000 for each A he got at A level. D: He got one which meant he still got a heck of a lot of money. He got £100 per A and A* at GCSE too which was 5 or something. He is spoilt rotten. Me? Oh, I get nothing except why didn't you get A*s?!?! 90%+?? ^^' So, no.
