    Am i allowed to bring in a Fx-9860G Sd?They only reason why i am asking because my friend have told me various times about how i can write short notes inside the programs file.(You can write an essay in this calculator it has the whole alphabet on it.It also has a SD card port so you download games on it.).

    Even though there is no rule stating you aren't allowed to bring these kinds of calculator. Would i get disqualified for cheating?

    Hi there! I'm not sure if you're allowed to bring that model of calculator in, but I'm pretty sure that invigilators will check that you have cleared your calculator's memory prior to your exam.

    Certain exams prohibit calculators (at my school, teachers have said that you are only allowed a calculator for maths, sciences and economics/business), but you will have to check with the exam board/a teacher at your school.

    I would advise you not to cheat - in the case you get caught, yes, you will get disqualified.

    I have looked at the rules and they don't specify what types/kinds of calculators you are allowed to bring.It is also very complex so I don't think the iniviglator owould know how to check the memory.

    If calculators are permitted for the specific exam then that calculator is ok. Only symbolic algebra calculators are usually banned. Also any calculators with databanks, etc must be cleared.

    However if you use it to cheat, then yes you may be disqualified.
