This model is acceptable to use by UK examination boards, Eire may be different.

This calculator is as good as it gets for your child's Maths exams this summer. It will also see them through A Level Mathematics and Advanced level further Maths if that is one of their chosen A Level subjects.

This post is more about awareness rather than price. You can actually get it slightly cheaper from Amazon 3rd party seller.

And yet there's ones that cost 3 times that amount. Go figure

For GCSE the FX-83/FX-85 are recommended and typically costs £5+

For AS / A-Level , this is the recommended calculator... yes, you could probably get away with using a cheaper one... but you would be making life much harder for yourself... it's an excellent calculator and money well spent.

I think BigAde is spot on. Unless there's going to be a disaster, my son will be taking at least 1 Mathematics A level together with other science based subjects so I went for the FX-991-S-UH

Edited by:"BigAde" 20th AprOnly really need them for maths and physics exams, not much call for them in the others

Both the calculators you mention are the ones that the my son's school recommend and sell.

I can tell you clearly aren't a maths teacher.
