    Nope. You're not even allowed to use that calculator for the exam. If they notice you'll be disqualified so I wouldn't recommend using it.

    The rules say you're not allowed to use a calculator that can store data AFAIK.

    Please don't - the A is hard enough for me to achieve it without people like you bringing in formulas in the calculators.

    You guys are aII incorrect and it's annoying because people Iike you who are not even 100% certain about the ruIes say it's not aIIowed then people assume it's not then are put at a disadvantage because they are afraid of buying one

    The actual calculator may not be against the rules, the fact that you have "retrievable mathematical formulae stored" in the calculator is, and if caught you would be disqualified.

    Why are you asking if bringing in the formulas is allowed if you're going to insist it is?
    Honestly, why ask if you're not even going to listen?

    CouId you aII read this throughIy and stop spouting nonsense. It's the invigiIators job to make sure I have wiped my caIc before the exam, if they don't know the ruIes, I don't see how I'm obliged to know the ruIes
