In Core 1 you are not permitted to use a calculator at all. In all other papers you may use a scientific or graphical calculator. However there are some calculators which have features which mean that those calculators are not allowed. also i believe that it is mainly AQA possibly exell

Core Maths can mean different things.

The first exam of the old UK Maths A level was called Core 1 and was a non-calculator paper. It still exists outside the UK but hasn't been available in the UK since 2018.

Core Maths is often also used to describe an AS sized Level 3 Certificate in Maths Studies, typically done by people who need to do some more Maths in 6th form but would struggle with A level Maths. AQA's is here: https://www.aqa.org.uk/subjects/math...l-studies-1350 where you can use a calculator in both the exams.

Thank you, that is good to know, I'm the second option. I am still in year 11 and just trying to prepare myself for next year so I don't know much about it. Again Thanks

It is much easier than normal AS Maths - I've known people take both and get an A in Maths Studies and an U in AS Maths.
