I mean technically yes. Couldn’t see why you would want to though- they’re way too advanced in what they can do.

I would say use the FX991EX- it’s still incredibly useful for GCSE exams. The CG50 is a really amazing calculator but you have to remember you don’t get method marks just using the inbuilt functions (same for 991)

I have the same issue with my fx-9869gii.
I can't find a solid answer anywhere.

But personally the fxCG50 is a bit overkill unless you desire 3d graphs, there's cheaper ones that could do the same, unless you are rather partial to a full colour screen 🤪

I would talk to you Head of dept or email the exam board directly.

But if your passionate enough to have a graphical calculator at this stage (like me) I would recommend looking at some of the A-level maths content.

One teacher said cannot use, but Casio said 'approved by all UK exam boards'.

Waste of time though - I can think of precisely 0 things the CG50 can do that the 991 can't which are useful for GCSE. Sketching graphs are useful but you don't need the utility the CG50 gives in terms of graph drawing for the level you need to do for GCSE.
Furthermore you don't need to do normal/binomial distribution, conic graphs, etc

The allowable calculators are the same for every GCSE and A level apprtoved in the UK where calculators are allowed. The rules on what is allowed are here (Section 10) https://www.jcq.org.uk/exams-office/...ions-2019-2020

Edexcel offer a discount on some calculators https://qualifications.pearson.com/e...-discount.html including the CG50
