    They wouldn't check your calculator, just make sure the lid is off of it so they don't get suspicious that you're hiding notes in there (they never normally check the lid, but incase they decided to check it out it would draw attention to your calculator)

    You won't get caught, if you do just act like you didn't realise it was anything more than a calculator, and offer to use a school one instead. A girl in the year above from me used a self-calculating calculator to ensure she wouldn't mess the equations up lmao

    I *think* you're what you're talking about is a graphing calculator. They are basically calculator-shaped-smartphones. The one I'm talking about is

    This isn't graphing, however it can rationalise surds and some other functions. I know it's allowed in my brother's A-level exams, I'm just not sure if it's allowed in IGSCE exams.

    May have been. It probably isn't allowed, it allowed her to do like quadratic equation etc with the a,b,c units incase she messed it up.

    Alrighty, just gotta keep it lowkey, you can't distinguish this from a normal calculator until you see it's functions.
    Thanks though.

    Edexcel's rules about calculators are here: https://qualifications.pearson.com/e...ies&pageTypes=

    They apply equally to IGCSE and A level and for 2016.

    Centres should spot check calculators and if it is not allowable then it would be confiscated.

    It's allowed. It can't do algebra or communicate with the outside world, so it's allowed.
