    You should talk to her and ask how she feels - we can't really help you here because we don't know what's going on in either of your heads.

    Check your uni regulations for examinations, generally there is a separate document with a list of allowed calculators.

    They are allowed. I've used them in exams. Invigilators didn't give a damn.
    Don't even think about cheating with them.

    While many graphical calculators are OK for all exams, Calculators with CAS capabilities ARE NOT allowed in any GCSE, Add Maths or A level exams.

    CAS means it's capable of computer algebra, so it's not allowed.
