My college recommends that I have a graphical calculator, for both Maths and FM. However, the one's they showed us cost like £75. Are there cheaper options, and if so, what would you recommend?

You really don't need a graphical calculator for maths or further maths. The silver casio one which has differentiation&integration is more than enough for checking answers etc and even that isn't necessary. I believe only one person in my year has one but hasn't used anything on it that a £10 calculator couldn't do.
A graphical calculator might make certain questions easier but you wouldn't know the actual method that's being used, or could rely on a calculator too much and lose marks. Personally I do as much of a question without using a calculator until I have to (like sin(pi/10) etc), or if I've finished the paper and want to check answers.
Model: Casio fx-991ES Plus (I'd say 90% of my year has this)
