    Looking for graphical calculators up to £60 that are both completely legal/allowed in Edexcel 2009 spec Maths and Further Maths AS and A2, and that would be useful enough for both to justify the cost (my current scientific bog-standard Casio is good enough for now, but if things get tougher I would likely appreciate the help of a graphical calculator). The Casio FX-9750GII looks good, but if there are better ones for slightly more or comparable ones for a bit less, I would like to know about them. I would consider a Texas Instruments one if I knew which one was exam-legal (TI84? TI84 Plus?)

    Suitability for OCR Physics A 2015 spec not necessary but would be nice.


    Honestly not necessary at all, nothing in AS/A2 maths requires a graphical calculator and very little of its functions will actually help you besides just checking if an answer is right. I'd save your money and just get fx991ES plus (silver one), pretty much all you need for A-level maths/physics.
