Your unit of study coordinator decides what calculator, if any, is allowed in your exam. This will be outlined on your personal exam timetable.
Types of calculators:
The Approvable non-programmable calculator list lists calculator models that will be approved for use in University exams by the Student Centre.
If you are allowed to use a financial calculator during your exam, the Student Centre does not approve these calculators. You need to check the information on financial calculators to find out what models are allowed, and how you can get these approved.
Only calculators on this list will be approved for use in University of Sydney examinations by the Student Centre. This list is subject to change.
If you’re using a non-programmable calculator in an exam, you’ll need to bring it to the Student Centre to be approved. Once it’s been checked we’ll attach a sticker to it to show that it’s been approved.
Only calculators on the approvable non-programmable calculator list can be approved by the Student Centre.
If you had your calculator approved before the end of Semester 1 2017, and the sticker is still intact, you can continue to use it without needing to get it approved again. This applies even if your calculator isn’t on the current list.
You can borrow an approved non-programmable calculator from the Students' Representative Council office, subject to availability.
If you are allowed a financial calculator during your exam, you need to have it approved by the Discipline of Finance. Financial calculators are not approved by the Student Centre.
Non-programmable financial calculators that can be approved are on the following list. This list is subject to change.
If you’re using a financial calculator in an exam, you need to get it approved before your exam.
