    I've got a OCR Maths C2 resit on friday so I've been doing some past papers and i came to a 6 mark question which said i should find the roots of an equation.
    I realised I can find the roots easily using a calculator and it is correct. But if it comes to the real exam, would I still get the full marks even though I didn't do the working out they are expecting me to?

    Either you've used the calculator in the correct way, in which case you can just write down your working rather than doing it in your head, or your calculator does it for you, in which case you shouldn't get any marks at all just for owning a posh calculator.
