    Yeah, I think so. But like you still have to show your working and all. I have a calculator that does quadratic equations, simultaneous equations, etc for GCSE. It's allowed but I still have to show how I did the equations. I just use it to make sure my answers are correct.

    Yes. But you need to show working in case you go wrong, e.g. for quadratic equations, write down the formula and substitute your values in, even if you then get the final values from your calculator.

    Some questions say
    (Solutions based entirely on graphical or numerical methods are not acceptable.)
    This means that you cannot just get your calculator to plot a graph and then read off where the graph cuts the x-axis for instance.
