Calculators and watches
Calculators permitted in exams
The only models of electronic calculator that students will be permitted to take into the exam room are:
- CASIO fx 991 (any version)
- CASIO fx 115 (any version)
- CASIO fx 570 (any version).
Each such calculator must be marked by the Department in the approved fashion.
No other calculator may be brought into the exam room. This is a University regulation and cannot be varied by the Department. Please refer to the official University notice for more information.
Calculators will be checked at the beginning of every exam. If your calculator is not shown above, or is unmarked, you will not be allowed to use it for your exams.
Purchasing and marking an approved calculator
An approved calculator can be purchased at Stores. If you already have a suitable but unmarked calculator, Reception can mark it for you at no cost.
Further information about calculators and watches in exams
You may not bring into the exams the instructions booklet, but you may bring spare batteries. You are warned that the examiners are not prepared to make allowance, when marking, for malfunction of a student’s calculator either due to running down of batteries or for any other cause.
You may not bring a smart watch or wireless earpiece into the exams. No watch, calculator or other device may be allowed to emit an audible alarm during the course of any exam.
Items that can be taken into the exam room
It is very important that you follow the instructions at the top of the exam paper scrupulously and comply with the following rules and any instructions given by the invigilators.
You should take with you into the exam room:
- your University photo ID card to identify yourself: you will be required to place this on the desk alongside your name ticket;
- your candidate number: you will need to write this on the coversheet of each paper in place of your name and will also need it to find your desk in the exam room;
- your own pens and any other officially approved materials;
- an approved and marked calculator as described above.
You are permitted to take a small screw-top bottle of non-carbonated liquid into the exam room, but are not normally allowed any other items of food or drink. You should not take your mobile phone into the exam. If it goes off in an exam room will be liable to a £50 fine.
You are not permitted to bring a dictionary into the exam room.
NB. your exam confirmation sheet is the definitive source of these University rules.
