There is no change to the prohibited calculators in regulations for the new specification

That calculator is fine

There is no official list. The definition of capabilities that are not allowed is given on the JCQ web site. Any calculator that does not have prohibited capabilities is allowed.

There's a useful summary of jcq regulations on the Pearson/edexcel web site
https://qualifications.pearson.com/e...16-exam-series
There is advice on calculators on the OCR and MEI web sites

If in doubt about what your school may think bring it up with your maths teacher so they confirm it with the exams officer and then there are no dramas on exam day
Good luck with your A level exams.
