This is from the Examination Regulation document:
8. Calculators with any of the following facilities are prohibited and use of any such calculators will be regarded as malpractice:
• graphic display
• data banks
• dictionaries
• language translators
• retrieval or manipulation of text or formulae
• QWERT keyboards
• built-in symbolic algebra manipulations
• symbolic differentiation or integration
• capability of remote communication with other machines

If your calculator has any of these, it may not be used. The "fx-991es" has the Symbolic differentiation, so it may not be used unfortunately.

Please read the instructions for: a) Examination Regulations Regarding the Use of Calculators and Dictionaries.
b) The IGCSE/GCE Guidelines.
Search for them on Google.

PlanetMaster says this

"It should be non-graphical and non-programmable.
All Casio MS & ES are allowed."

I dont think fx-991es is allowed after seeing these posts cuz with that calculator we can do integration as well as differentiation
:( :(

Ummmm... But we don't deal with those in IGCSE or O- Level Maths?

Also, this calculator can do Quadratic equations, I don't think that would be allowed too.
Now for that yeah I guess then Its not allowed.... Though for Maths paper only... You can use it for Chem or Physics...

Are the invigilators supposed to check which calculator you have? I think it's unfair if the centre doesn't inform you beforehand that you can only have certain calculators.

Well CIE does give the Handbook to all centres for this and all other information... You can check one HERE Check the 3.3.3 topic there....

I found the answer there...

Check my last post....


They say "THe Calculator must not be able to manipulate algebra, it must be purely """numerical""" integration/differentiation."

Symbolic ones are not allowed!!!! Numerical ones okay.... :)

You can actually use differentiation for a kind of a trick for tangents, to find their gradient and draw them more accurately in graphs, kinda real complicated to understand on a forum, you need to take C1 to know it.

Our teacher gave us C1, because we finished the Syllabus last year.
