Mum stunned after 10-year-old daughter asks to be PAID to pass her exams – and she’s totally divided opinion

A MUM was left stunned after her 10-year-old daughter asked her to pay her £50 for every SATs subject she passed.

"What has everyone done who has gone through SATs already??" she concluded.

But someone else commented: "We’re doing it for GCSE results just as gentle encouragement for her to revise (which to be fair she does anyway without us asking)

"I haven’t heard of it being done for SATS – but all personal choice isn’t it?"

And another agreed, writing: "I did the same and it worked, took him straight to the bank on the day of his results and transferred the money.
