Do you need a graphical calculator for OCR MEI A Level Maths B and/or further maths?

Some of the translation and graphing questions we have are much quicker to work out and sketch from looking at a graphical calculator for our OCR MEI maths B course. I also am going to do the extra pure and mechanics major for my further maths options.

Are graphical calculators allowed in the exams (the casio c50 is £110 on amazon), and if so, are they worth it?

Thanks

When I did further maths, I remember one section of one exam required a graphical calculator (I think FP3, which very few people took). It is doubtful that you need one, but they are excellent, and I'd recommend one anyway. I still use mine all the time, three years later. They are not allowed in exams, but my invigilators didn't know that (not that I would ever do anything to break any rules)
