Calculator TI-30XB At the start of each exam invigilators will make an announcement about calculators, and you will then have the opportunity to hand in any "unauthorised" calculators

If you use a calculator that is not on the approved list you will receive a mark of zero. There will be no exceptions granted to this policy.

You will not receive extra time if you do not use a calculator or if your calculator breaks down during the exam. Exam supervisors will not have extra batteries or calculators.

Each year the Education Committee reviews the list of calculators

If you have any comments about the list of calculators please contact the Education Services Team who will pass them to the committee.

Any calculator that has been discontinued or removed by the committee will be highlighted and remain on the list for one year. This is to give you time to familiarise yourself with another model.

Some of the approved calculators can be bought from the eShop
