So I was thinking of getting the Casio CG-50 Graphic Calculator for my GCSE. I know I can just use the Casio Advanced Scientific Calculator FX-991EX but I want to check my answers in the exam for graphs and see if I got it right there and then. Also, it would save me buying the graphical calculator later down my studies. I just wanna make sure if my thinking is logical lol and if they do allow all casio calculators in our exams <3

I'm pretty sure you're not allowed those types of calculators because they kinda defeat the point of your calculations.

You cannot use a graphing calculator at GCSE, due to GCSE exams generally not caring about workings for questions, and thus making it very easy to do a lot of the graphing questions.

But I heard that they don't award the mark if you just plot the graph and that you have to show some working out eg. a table of x and y values, and that you can still use the calculator to check your answer only

If you had to show working at GCSE, I would've done horribly - I did most of the work in my head, to be perfectly honest. It depends on the exam board, and, to be fair, I did Maths GCSE a long long time ago, but from what I've heard it is still the case that you do get marks for showing working, but you get full marks regardless if you get the right answer.

In which case they're probably fine, but maybe email your exams coordinator in your school and see what they say.

At a-level the cg-50 is amazing and a great investment.

I did my gcse exams in 2019 and we were only told we weren’t allowed graphical or more advanced ones in further maths.
