Regulations concerning the use of calculators

Certain types of calculator are not permitted in University examinations, so please make sure you check with your academic department before buying such equipment. ** Any devices capable of information storage and retrieval are not permitted in University examinations**.

You may only use a calculator in an examination if the examination paper rubric explicitly states it is permitted and if the calculator has been approved for examinations use by your academic department. Please contact your department concerning approval procedures. A student using a non-approved calculator may be liable to proceedings under the University's regulation regarding suspected cheating in a University test (Regulation 11).
