Not necessarily. You can still work out the answers in terms of pi.
For example, in a non calc paper, if there’s a circle and the radius of the circle is 4 and you had to find the area…
Area = π x 4²
= 16π

thanks that helps a lot so I don't have to remember the value of pi if your not given the value of pi you just square the radius

No problem! Just remember, in that case, the question should say ‘give your answer in terms of pi’.
