Do you get some kind of award from your parents when you get an A in your report card.

I don't get money, but my family goes out for dinner every grading period if the grades are good.

So I graduated with a 3.3 which would have been prolly a 3.8 in any other school system.

Wow. The grading scale in the HS I sub in is: A: 100-90, B: 80-89, C: 70-79, D: 60-69, F: 59 or below. Passing is C or higher (74%+) You'd probably be getting a 4.0 using this system.

Back when I was in school, I got money for every A I got...which wasn't many.

i don't get anything when i get A's. the thing is i don't expect anything from them, because i put in my head that it's for me. but when i get a C, they always say, " Why did we come to this country if your getting grades like this?"
Posted 1/10/08 , edited 4/14/08
Eh, I get an "I'm so proud honey!" from my mom, and a "Nice job" from my dad. Even if I had started out with bad grades, there would've been no reward, as my parents are strong believers in learning purely for the sake of learning.

Wow. Yeah I would have had close to a 4.0. A lot of my B's were 92-94%. The neighboring school system was 92-100 for an A. Amazingly enough, my HS graduated 16 students with over a 4.0 GPA. (All the AP Classes)
