    Banned clculators...

    - TI 89
    - TI 92
    - Casio CFX-9970G (damn them!!!!!!!! :mad: )
    - HP 48G

    Other than the ones I have listed above, it is VERY VERY VERY unlikely that you will get into trouble for using any other model of calculator. I use the Casio CFX-9850G which is almost identical to my other one (see above smiley rant) except it can't do symbolic algebra, integration or differentiation. I've had it checked by the exam board and they tell me it's 100% fine. The main reason I use it is because it has the indexes for the powers of ten for milli, mico etc... which helps LOADS in electronics exams!!!

    These calculator questions come up all the time. Basically my friends been using a calculator (that has integration) in P1, S1, amd M1 and no one's said nofing. I doubt they check, i doubt anyone would know how to use the integration functions anyway (my friend certainly doesn't).

    Don't stress about it. concentrate on revision for P2 and if worst comes to worst they will simply give u another standard calculator. I have never heard of it becoming a big deal.
