Hi! I’m not sure about the kinds of calculators allowed for the Edexcel examinations.

I don’t know if it’s the same across all universities, but in the one that I’ll be attending this September (I’ll be studying Computer Science), only basic scientific calculators are permitted during exams. The following aren’t: graphics calculator, programmable calculator and a calculator which features text storage or retrieval facilities.

Good....it can do more than that. Especially when it comes to stats and if you do further maths, complex numbers and matrixes etc have a look at this page https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/rev...1es-calculator you might find something useful

Graphics calculators are allowed in all uk A level maths. The CG50 is specifically recommended by Edexcel and their text books feature exercises to practice using them. The Casio ES is not adequate for new specifications, if you are not getting a graphic one then the Casio EX ClassWiz is the minimum scientific calculator with the stats capabilities you require.

I recommend you wait until your maths teachers tell you what calculator they want you to have. They may have specific teaching plans that rely on you all having the same model

I'm doing edexcel A level maths and I currently own a Casio cg50 but trust me when I say that I regret the money that I spent, it wasn't worth it, you don't even get to use most of the functions and what you need can be found on the 20 pounds calculator that is suggested by the board, it might look like you need it and it's worth the money but trust me, it doesn't help at all
