So today at school I was cornered by a teacher who kept on telling me I couldn't use my cg50 since it's not allowed on the exam. From what I understand (reading the spec and JCQ guidelines) there's nothing a cg50 can do that might prohibit one from using it on the test, provided of course that the calculator is under exam mode (which mine was). Any maths teachers who can confirm?

Hi! I haven't really found out to be honest :') but looking at the JCQ guidelines and our textbooks too (you'll notice on one of the pages at the beginning how if you have access to EdexcelOnline there are graphical calculator tutorials) I think it's allowed, and my school's exam officer has confirmed it too. I think some teachers still disagree but the main authority in this regard is the exam officer so you should ask the one at your school too. Graphical calculators are allowed and the cg-50 is no different from any other graphical calculator apart from it's coloured and backlit screen when it's in exam mode.
