I need to probably purchase my calculator ASAP, but I'm still not sure on whether I should get a graphical calculator.

is this one allowed in the a level AQA maths and further maths exams? (apart from C1, I know)

Also, do you think that ^ calculator would be better, or should I get http://www.amazon.co.uk/Casio-FX-991...sio+calculator ?
Just need some advice, if anyone could offer anything useful. Thanks in advance.

We weren't allowed graphics calculators (as you could very easily cheat ).

The second one is fine

In OCR MEI exams we were allowed a graphics calculator, so I assume you can in AQA also.

I already completed the maths a-level and didn't have a graphics calculator, but I'm now doing further maths and I have one and it makes everything so much easier. I would definitely recommend getting one! Could you speak to your teacher to recommend one? just to make sure it does everything you need it to...

I think that model is fine. It looks identical to the ones sold in my college.
Consider the JCQ guidancePlus AQA says graphical calculators are allowed

I did Edexcel maths and further maths, but I think the regulations should be the same. I have a graphics (casio fx-9860GII), which was a life-saver in all my exams. I assume the one in the link would be allowed, seeing as mine was within regulations. Really, the graphics can do tons of helpful things, I don't know what I'd have done without it

yep my teacher recommended the one in the first link. I'm cautious about having to learn how to use it by myself, and whether it's really allowed in examinations.

Yeah, pretty sure that's ok as long as you remember to clear the memory before every exam.
