    Me? No.

    But I DO know a girl who got £100 per A* at GCSE.

    I know, I know. It's sickening. Especially since she got mainly A*s.

    Yep, usually with money

    I'm from a family of 5 children and 4 of us have recently sat exams/had results so I'm not really expecting anything this year.

    I've just done my GCSEs, my sister Rosie has done her AS levels, Holly's done her A-levels and Emily has just graduated so it's only right that they get more of a reward than me tbh

    We probably will too, or have a little party

    I think 4 sets of results calls for a party!

    not materialistically - last year they gave me a well done card and that is it. Although I did get a copy of the new James Bond book when I finished my exams

    I got an iPod for my GCSE results, but that was more because I'd finished them than for doing well. Haven't even bothered asking them if they'd get me anything this year or next year, I'm not expecting to do well.

    Long weekend in London with my Mum, dinner in a top restaurant and an even ing at the opera after my GCSE's (the uninterupted time with my mum being the most valuable part of that on a personal level - and opera is a shared love). My Dad bought me the leather jacket I'd been lusting after.

    After A levels, much the same story - different restaurant, different opera and boots instead of the jacket - but the same format.

    Degree - same story

    PHd - 4 days in NYC with my parents and my dad bought me a fountain pen which he had engraved (one of my most treasured posessions).


    I never expected anything though, I only got the results that were expected of me!

    If so, how?
    yeah at gcse it was £30 for an A*, £20 for an A and £10 for a B,

    pretty funny really cause they made this rule up when my eldest sister was at school and she got wayyy lower than B grades, they were a bit taken back when i get a mixture of A and A*s but a rules a rule

    Nope, but then why do I need further reward for my good results? they are a reward themselves.

    Yes. £100 for an A, £50 for a B and £25 for a C. Nothing for any less than that. My dad also gave money for GCSEs, but nothing major. Additionally said he'd buy me a brand new convertable if i got straight A*s, because he knew there was no chance in hell it would happen.
    Seems kinda odd he only ever tells us about the reward after we've done the exams.
