Cheaper no-name calculators may be a false economy when used for school; exams usually require a calculator from a limited list of approved models.

Also, like all electronic devices, all models have odd glitches, bugs and odd ways of working. If this is a less common device, teachers may place little emphasis on drawing their pupils' attention to them and describing ways to work around them.

Casio or TI always used to be safe bets when I was a lad. Sharp too, probably. Casio fx-83GT plus for £7.99 from Argos is "allowed in every UK exam where a calculator can be used." according to casio.co.uk/pro…UH/.

I purchased the £6 one from Asda and received the Casio fx-85GT model, which I'm guessing is a newer version

Thats the one with solar "panel" - usually they're about £8 - so you got a better bargain....

Well done to the commenters finding cheaper prices; this was a spin-off from a comment on another deal. I just used skinflint.co.uk to find the cheapest high street/delivered price based on the sites they scrape.
