Calculators in Cambridge A levels

Is Casio fx-991ES Plus and Casio fx991EX allowed in A levels in 9701,9702,9709,9618?
As they can solve equations, do integration and differentiation, so would they be allowed?

Yes both are allowed in any exam where a calculator is permitted.

They can only perform numerical differentiation/integration and cannot produce algebraic results.

You cannot use any graphical calculator.

I have fx-991es plus, and it can solve equations with CALC key, and also with MODE 5, would that be a problem?

No it is not a problem.

Use those features to check your results. You still have to show working to be awarded marks.
