No calculator for my calculator paper

    It is the scientific Casio calculator which I need, and it hasn't arrived since ordering it off the internet.

    Now, my exam is tomorrow, and I was wondering if the educational institutions in this country are authorized, by law, to supply all students with the tools they require.

    There is apparently a limited supply of calculators in my college. If the hypothetical situation arises where I am faced with doing the paper with no calculator, am I within my duty to complain or is it ultimately down to my own fault?

    It is down to your fault...but um take a different calc and say u need a replacement for the exam...they should be able to give you one!

    If its that important you need to visit 24 hr Tesco or ASDA they sell them not that expensive either

    Ask kids at school for one or anyone in your year they will all have one or go to a friends house
